Descriptions:
='Kathryn Lewis'.
18" tall. Light Shade.
Similar to June. Color better, more compact.
This new English sport of the ever popular H. 'Halcyon' is a splendid golden hosta with a dramatic dark blue green edge. With morning sun, the golden color intensifies. The 30" wide clump is topped with 30" scapes of light lavender flowers in June and July in NC.
Another sport of H. 'Halcyon'--this one differs from H. 'June' in that the leaves are brighter and hold their color much longer. Needs sun or bright light to show it's best and by the end of the season the leaves are a lemon yellow with a dark blue-green margin; lavender flowers arrive in late summer.
Named for Forde Abbey's curator's daughter.
H. 'Kathryn Lewis' is a remarkable improvement over 'June' as the leaves are brighter and hold their color (for us, into August) much longer than 'June'. A royalty will be paid. Shade.
