Hosta 'Undulata Mediovariegata'

Hosta 'Undulata Mediovariegata'
plantain lily

Common name plantain lily
Family hostaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z3-8)
Flowers blue (July)
Light part-full shade

An old standard, and one of my favorite hostas. It may not be as 'special' and 'new' as the multitudes of modern hybrids, but this one is hard to beat for vigor and good looks throughout the gardening season. The wavy mid-sized leaves are streakily variegated with a few shades of cream and green (the exact colors vary according to how much sun they are exposed to), and the blue flowers in early-mid July are a nice bonus. They can be divided every year, yielding as many clumps as your garden can hold.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
