Size: Medium (30"w x 14"h)
Origin: sport of H. 'Fire Island'
Flowers: medium lavender flowers in late summer.
Source: Budd Gardens
Added to garden: Spring 2011

Registry - not registered as of Nov. 2012

Hosta Library - http://www.hostalibrary.org/p/paradiseisland.html

This one was new in the spring and it's doing quite well. So far, it's planted right next to 'Fire Island', but as it grows, I will have to rethink that. This picture from August 3.

I bought mine in 2009 and it has been a steady grower. Here's a picture from April 24th last and it shows my favourite time of year for this variety, the yellow just gets me. While it may not be registered, it is patented.

This plant grew quite nicely over the summer and was divided late July. All three division are in bloom now, don't have any good pix of the flowers yet.

Pieter - I wasn't aware of that particular list of patents. Thanks. As it's a more recent patent, most of the info out there is not up to date.

Ann, Don Rawson publishes many hosta lists, including one on patented hostas, updated annually. The lists are hosted on my website. BTW, plant patents shown on his list are US patents, there are precious few Canadian patented plants.

Probably last time I looked (and I look at Don's lists often), was before you did the update this summer.

Second year in the pot. It popped up in late March so we had to take it and and out of the house for almost two months this year! Here's what it looked like on April 7:

Interesting that some of your leaves have green streaks IN them rather than just a green margin. Anyone know if that's common with this one? I don't think mine is doing it, but yours might be interesting to watch.

'Paradise Island' glowing in the spring sunshine. I'm tempted to keep this one in a pot, so I can move it to a less prominent location once the color goes green.

If you keep it in some morning sun, it won't go as green and won't do it as early. Mine gets quite a bit of morning sun and stays at least chartreuse all summer long.

Mine started out so well, but has done very poorly the last two years. I dug it this past spring and the roots looked fine, but I think I'm going to dig it again and keep it in a pot for awhile. Photo July 16. It looks worse now.

Here is the plant. There are two pots of it but a large Red Dog is trying to get into the frame on the left.
