Hosta 'Cassanova'
 

This cultivar is a streaked sport of H. 'Don Stevens' and is a non-registered introduction from Charles Seaver of Delaware. It forms a medium size mound of moderately wavy, slightly corrugated foliage.

The leaves are broadly ovate, shiny on top and very shiny on the bottom. From mid-July into August, it develops pale purple flowers on 31 inch high scapes followed by viable seeds.

If the name is meant to be that of the famous "lover", it is misspelled. It should just have one "s" and not two.
