Plant Type: Hostas

It is an unusual sport of Paul’s Glory. There are no two leaves that are the same. A line separates the leaf edge from the center, making a watermark appearance on each leaf. Like Paul’s Glory it has the thicker leaves, and a medium sized mound. The leaves change from greenish in the center with a gold edge to gold in the center with a light green margin. The flowers on this variety will be pale lavender.

Sport of Paul’s Glory from M. Zilis with changing variegation and a distinctive watermark that develops mid-season. Leaves 9″ long by 7″ wide, changing from greenish in the center with a gold edge to gold in the center with a light green margin, and a dark green line (watermark) between the margin and the center. Pale lavender flowers from mid-July into early August on 36″ scapes. Good substance, medium to fast growth rate. Like Paul’s Glory, this one needs quite a bit of sun to bring out the color.
