Hosta 'Scalloped Potatoes'

There is an image of this cultivar on the Hosta Library. From the photo on the HL website, it appears to be a medium size hosta with wavy, cupped, green leaves. This non-registered cultivar was originated by Rick Goodenough of Massachusetts and is a streaked hybrid of H. ‘Leaping Lipizzan’.

An article by Rick Goodenough in The Hosta Journal (2012 Vol. 43 No. 1) states that, “H.Scalloped Potatoes’ wears its piecrusting proudly on rounded, deeply veined leaves that are held upright on a large, mature specimen.” 

The article goes on to say, “A relatively recent release, ‘Leaping Lipizzan’ is a strong breeder that turns out a high percentage of quality, streaked seedlings…Seven of those terrific seedlings include ‘Breeder’s Cup’, ‘Scalloped Potatoes’, ‘Dover Downs’, ‘Suffolk Downs’, ‘Gran Premio’, ‘The Stone Horse’ and ‘Belmont Stakes’.”
