Hosta 'Color Festival'

Registered in 2007 by Danny Van Eechaute of Belgium, this cultivar is a sport of H. 'Enterprise' and it was granted a U.S. patent in 2010. It forms a medium size mound about 13 inches tall and 20 inches wide. The leaves are slightly corrugated, slightly wavy and dull on top. Its petioles are creamy white with a green margin. In July, lavender flowers come into bloom atop scapes up to 21 inches tall.
