Hosta 'Amalia'

Originated by Jan van den Top of the Netherlands , this non-registered cultivar is a sport of H. 'Dancing Queen'.  It is a medium size hosta about 18 inches tall by 30 inches wide with dark green foliage that has a chartreuse to yellow medial (center) variegation with some streaking. Lavender flowers bloom from June into July.

Also known as H. 'Princess Amalia'.

An article by Warren I. Pollock in The Hosta Journal (2015 Vol. 46 No.2) states that, "When Jan applied for European Community Plant Breeder's Rights for Hosta 'Princess Amalia' it was rejected. Dutch royal family names are not allowed as names of commercial products...So properly and correctly, H. 'Princess Amalia' should be H. 'Amalia'..."
