Hosta Hometown Hero




Product Description

[M-L] Bev and Dave Stegeman have knack for creating high quality blue hostas. They felt this one was special enough to honor US Army Specialist James A. Butz who made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom on September 28, 2011 at the age of 21 while rushing to aid fellow servicemen that had been wounded in Afghanistan. James and his family are members of Bev and Dave's church, and the entire congregation was greatly affected by his loss. They decided to name this plant 'Hometown Hero' in his honor and memory. Hosta 'Hometown Hero' forms a low, broad mound about 15" tall and at least 40" across. The long, pointed leaves are an incredible white-blue that holds up well through the season. Fertile, white flowers bloom in mid-late summer. Even as a young seedling, this plant drew much attention at the first ever Hosta Seed Growers Competition several years ago where it took 1st place in the blue category!

(B. & D. Stegeman - 2014)
