Hosta 'Winchester'
 

This fast growing, large size (22 inches high by 30 inches wide) hybrid of H. 'Bright Lights' × an open-pollinated seedling was registered by Madelon Gilligan of New Zealand in 2013. It has light green to pale yellow foliage that is lightly corrugated, lightly flat and has a glaucous top. Near white, tubular flowers bloom from June into July. It sets seeds but their viability was undetermined at the time of registration.

Although it could refer to a rifle or a movie or a cathedral, we would guess that it is named for the town in the South-Canterbury region of New Zealand.
