Hosta 'Zuzu's Petals'

This cultivar from Dennis Savory is a sport of H. 'Birchwood Parky's Gold' which was registered by Dennis in 1999. Its slightly wavy, slightly corrugated foliage forms a clump 16 inches high and 49 inches wide. The lavender flowers bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...differs only slightly from 'Parky's Prize'..."

An article about H. 'Zuzu's Petals' by Warren I. Pollock in The Hosta Journal (2002 Vol. 33 No. 2) states that the cultivar names  "...are from the 1946 American classic movie, It's a Wonderful Life, starring Jimmy Stewart...Zuzu is the name of the daughter of George Bailey, the character that Stewart plays."
