Hosta 'Viette's Ghost'

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

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Unlike 'Zodiac', the margin usually does not turn completely white, staying a shade of gold."

       

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