This hybrid of a
sibling to H. 'Summer Fragrance' × H. 'Christmas Tree' was registered by
Dr. Kevin Vaughn of Massachusetts in 1987. It
grows into a large size hosta about 20 inches in height with a spread of 48 inches.
The medium to dark green foliage is heavily rippled along the
margins. It bears slightly fragrant, pale lavender flowers in
August followed by viable seeds.
The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...may have been named for the interesting way the flowers
appear, but its ornamental value lies in the attractively
rippled green foliage."
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "Best in cooler climates and with plenty of
moisture...Long-blooming, fragrant flowers."
