Hosta 'Vanguard'

Dr. Dick and Jane Ward of Ohio registered this cultivar in 2003 as a hybrid of H. montana macrophylla x H. 'Sagae'. It forms a giant size mound about 30 inches high and 6 feet wide with broadly ovate, moderately corrugated foliage. The pale lavender flowers bloom starting in late July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...can easily be mistaken for 'Sum and Substance' in both foliage and flower."


That's Van Wade of Wade and Gatton Nursery in Ohio with a fine potted specimen of H. 'Vanguard'.
