Brother Stefan Hosta

Part Shade Perennial

Brother Stefan returns! Hosta x Brother Stefan was hosta of the year in 2017. It is a large sized hosta with a moderate growth rate, described by many as the most spectacular hosta they had ever seen. Thick, heavily corrugated and puckered leaves are green with a brilliant gold center. In spring, the margin may have a waxy coating making it appear bluer, and the center may be more chartreuse. The thick leaves exhibit slug resistance! It forms a wide, tall clump, making it the perfect focal point for a shade garden, with near-white flowers sitting just above the foliage in late spring or early summer. It was named by hybridizer Olga Petryszyn for her brother.
