Vladimir Mirka of the Czech Republic in 2016, this
fast growing, rhizomatous cultivar is a sport of H. 'Manzo'.
It becomes a small size hosta about 9 inches high by 19
inches wide with medium to dark green foliage that has a
creamy white medial (center) variegation. The leaves are
heavily rippled, slightly shiny on top, slightly twisted
and wavy. Its flowers bloom from mid-July into August on
scapes up to 16 inches tall.
The registration materials state: "Wavy, twisted creamy
white leaves with irregular two-tone green margin. Very
fast growing rhizomatous hosta...creamy white center turns
greenish-white in midsummer..."
An article by
Warren I. Pollack in
Hosta Journal (2020 Vol. 51 No. 1) titled
Doppelgänger Hostas: Fancy Name for
Look-alike Hostas, included a long list of hostas
which various hostaphiles, published articles or other sources have
indicated "look" the same. Some of these are, in fact, the same
plant with two or more different names. Others are hostas that vary
in some minor trait which is not immediately discernable to the
casual observer such as seasonal color variations, bloom traits, ploidy, etc. So, as Warren mentions, hostaphiles may differ as to the
plants listed but then, their opinions are based on visual observations and interpretations.
