Hosta undulata var. undulata Family: Hostaceae
Common name: wavy-leaved plaintain lily
Description: An herbaceous perennial with a mounding habit. Bright, medium-green leaves have a pronounced creamy-white centre, plus the lance-shaped leaves have a delightful twist to them. Panicles of funnel-shaped, mauve flowers appear on arching scapes in early summer through mid-summer.
Special Notes: Has fairly good tolerance to sun but would protect it from too much heat at the high point of the season. Watch for slugs and snails; they can be a pest. Good cut flower. Propagation by division in spring or autumn.
