Hosta 'Parasol' (T. Avent NR)

Light ShadeZone: 3-7a 24" tall Origin: Hybrid
We first discovered this sport of H. 'Blue Umbrellas' in 1999 and after years of trials, it just keeps getting better. In side by side trials with H. 'Singing in the Rain', H. 'Parasol' has more blue in the foliage and the edge is both wider and more cream than yellow. The 2' tall x 5' wide clumps are adorned with large metallic blue-green leaves, each bordered in creamy yellow. We find all of the H. 'Blue Umbrellas' sports to grow much larger in colder climates.

Part Sun to Light ShadeZone: 3-8 14" tall Origin: Hybrid

Each small, 18" wide clump is composed of strangely folded, dark green crinkled leaves, each with a narrow creamy yellow border. Indeed a clump resembles a multitude of hands folded in prayer. Due to First Amendment concerns, it cannot be planted near courthouses in Alabama or near any Federal government building.
