Hosta 'Simply Sharon Sport'

Oops! Sure looks as if this big blue hosta is labeled as H. 'Simply Sharon Sport'. It really looks just like H. 'Simply Sharon' which we describe below. - Mr PGC

Bob Kuk of Kuk's Forest in Ohio registered this seedling of H. 'Dorothy Benedict' in 2004. The mound grows into a giant size hosta about 28 inches in height and 4 feet in width. Its leaves are moderately corrugated, occasionally cupped and have very thick substance. The near white flowers bloom starting in mid-June.

Similar cultivars include H. 'Great Expectations'.

Sports include H. 'Bigga Luigi'.


These 2010 photos were taken at the Ralph (Herb) and Dorothy Benedict Hosta Hillside in Michigan, tours and vendors at The American Hosta Society National Convention in Minnesota, Wade and Gatton Nursery and Wade Botanical Gardens in Ohio, Toledo Botanical Garden and the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.
