This fun hosta forms a wriggly, broadly mounding mass of very wavy, blue-green leaves accented with upright folded edges. It adds terrific texture to shade gardens and combination container plantings. Widely flared, tubular, light lavender flowers are produced in midsummer. Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today's gardens due to their versatility in the landscape. Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. Hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust, etc.
