Hosta 'Yikes! More Stripes'


Registered by Dr. Ed Elslager of Michigan in 2004, this cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Breeder's Choice'. It is a giant size hosta that grows to around 29 inches in height with dark green foliage that has yellow and creamy white streaked variegation.

The leaves are nearly round, cupped and heavily corrugated on this upright growing plant. Pale lavender flowers bloom from July into August on scapes up to 49 inches tall.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...could easily be mistaken for a seedling of 'Dorothy Benedict'..."

"2004 Registration: H. ‘Yikes! More Strikes’ This name was registered incorrectly. It should have been registered as H. ‘Yikes! More Stripes’."
