Hosta 'Feathervane'

 

Registered by Mike Groothuis of Michigan in 2019, this fast growing, giant size (34 inches high by 80 inches wide) cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Hyuga Urajiro' × H. 'Empress Wu'. The leaves are slightly blue-green, dull on top, ovate and relatively flat overall. Its petioles stand upright on younger plants but later spread to a lower mound shape. Near white flowers with pale lavender stripes bloom from July into August on scapes 28 to 34 inches tall followed by viable seeds.

The registration materials state: "...Uniform clump form, deeply impressed veins on a smooth leaf, excellent scape proportions all combined with exceptionally large leaves...loses glaucous bloom and becomes a slightly shiny, dark green."
