Hosta 'Doubled Up'
 

A sport of the species H. plantaginea, this cultivar was registered by Bob Solberg of Green Hill Farm in North Carolina in 2011. It forms a large size mound about 20 inches tall and 24 inches wide. The foliage is very shiny on top and bottom. Its leaves are lightly cupped and nearly round with a rounded base. The large, very fragrant white flowers bloom from mid-July into August. This plant is more compact than the species with smaller leaves, more substance and shorter flower scapes.

An article by Warren I. Pollock in The Hosta Journal (2013 Vol. 44 No. 1) states that this cultivar was incorrectly registered in 2011 as 'Double Up' but the correct name 'Doubled Up' (a baseball term) was included in the 2012 Registrations.
