Hosta 'Sharp Dressed Man'

Bob Solberg of Green Hill Farm in North Carolina registered this H. 'Francee' seedling in 2005. It is a medium size (16 inches high by 45 inches wide) with medium to dark green foliage that has a narrow, white medial (center) variegation. The leaves are ovate, slightly cupped and have deep veins. Pale lavender flowers bloom in clusters from late June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "As one of the host world's leading hybridizers, Bob Solberg often bucks trends and traditional thought. After all, how many hosta breeders think of 'Francee' as a breeding plant? How about the one from Green Hill Farm in North Carolina !"

From the Field Guide to Hostas by Mark Zilis (2014), "This is one that should be on everyone's favorites list."

This cultivar was winner of the Benedict Garden Performance Medal for 2019.
