Hosta 'Kaleidochrome'

(Zilis 2009)

Clump Size: (SM) 22" x 10"

Leaf Size: 5" x 2 1/2" -- Vein Pairs: 5 - 6

Description: Narrow leaves are green with highly variable splashes, streaks, and patches of yellow to creamy white. Each plant is different but the variegation is relatively stable.

Blooms: Pale lavender flowers bloom in July/August.

Comments: Hosta 'Kaleidochrome' (sometimes mistakenly called kaleidoscope) is a Hosta longipes seedling that Mark Zilis obtained in Japan. It stays a relatively low, smaller clump and the streaked markings, though highly variable from plant to plant, seems to be relatively stable. It is reported to set pods, so might be useful in hybridizing, but the seed viability isn't known.

Light: Light sun to full shade. -- Soil: Rich, moist soil.

Zones: 2 - 8
