Hosta 'Viette's Ghost'

A sport of H. 'Viette's Yellow Edge', this non-registered cultivar comes from Dr. Ralph (Herb) Benedict. The mound becomes 19 inches high and 42 inches wide with slightly wavy, slightly corrugated foliage. Its pale lavender flowers start to bloom in late July.

According to The Hosta Handbook by Mark Zilis (2000), "Unlike 'Zodiac', the margin usually does not turn completely white, staying a shade of gold."

These 2010 photos come from the Ralph (Herb) and Dorothy Benedict Hosta Hillside, tours and vendors at the 2010 American Hosta Society National Convention in Minnesota, Wade and Gatton Nursery and Wade Botanical Gardens, Toledo Botanical Garden and the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.
