Hosta 'Giggling Greta'


This large size (26 inches high by 42 inches wide) cultivar was registered by Dr. Doug and Mardy Beilstein of Ohio in 2018. It is an upright growing seedling of unnamed parentage. The green foliage has creamy yellow marginal variegation with leaves that are broadly ovate, slightly convex and slightly shiny on top. Pale lavender flowers bloom in July on scapes about 43 inches tall followed by viable seeds.

The registration materials state: "...Leaves are always waving and moving in the wind - its upright posture always in motion. The warm cream and green colors with prominent veining gives a welcome greeting...Medium green center turns darker green and creamy yellow margins lighten to almost white later in the summer."
