Hosta 'Elp 2'

A hybrid of H. 'Elvis Lives' × H. plantaginea, this is a non-registered cultivar from Ron Livingston of Michigan. The medium to large size plant has shiny, medium green foliage. Its leaves are rippled and have smooth texture. Whitish flowers bloom from later July into August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "The flowers...appear pale purple from a distance, but close examination reveals alternating tepal (petal and sepal) colors. Three tepals appear near-white and the other three pale purple. 'Elp 2' also makes an excellent breeding plant and is in the background of such Ron Livingston cultivars as 'Black Mamba', 'Dragon Heart', and 'Red Dragon'."
