Botanical Name

Plant Common Name

Hosta, Plantain Lily, Undulata Variegata Plantain Lily

General Description

Hostas are herbaceous perennials grown for their attractive leaves, tolerance for shade, toughness, and mounding habit. This one, 'Undulata Variegata,' is a medium-sized plant that makes an upright, vase-shape clump of very wavy, lance-shaped, mid-green leaves marked by a white center streaked with green and chartreuse. The flowers are pale lavender and are borne in clusters on stalks that rise above the leaves in mid-summer.

Like most hostas, 'Undulata Variegata ' grows best in partial shade to full shade, tolerates a wide range of well-drained soils, and prefers average, even moisture. Use it for contrasts of color and texture in shaded perennial gardens and woodlands, or massed as a groundcover.
