'Crazy Quilt' comes to us from Ran Lydell by way of Canada by way of the Lachmans. The hosta was originally part of the Lachman breeding program. Somehow they lost it, but it reappeared in Canada where Ran found it. It is a wonderful plant for breeding smaller hostas with slug resistance. Originally it was a Lachman cross between a numbered hosta and 'Hadspen Blue'. The leaves are cupped and are streaked with green, blue, yellow, and cream. It is 10 x 6" with 10" bloom scapes. Fertile.
