A 1991 Lachman hosta, 'Cherry Berry' forms a clump 14 1/2 x 10" high with 18" scapes. A leaf is 6 x 2 1/2"; the central white area is surrounded with dark green which bleeds back into the center, establishing a lighter green "bridge" between the two areas. The markings are highly irregular, but with roughly equal amounts of white and green. The leaves have some undulations and the petioles are rose colored. The structure of the plant effectively displays the colors of cream-white, dark and light greens, and rose. The flowers are violet; bloom is in July and August. A record of the parentage exists: two numbered Lachman hostas. 'Maraschino Cherry' is a sport from 'Cherry Berry'.
