Hosta 'Grecian Vase'

This non-registered cultivar of unidentified origin forms a medium size mound with deeply lobed leaf bases and slight rippling along the margin with a curled tip. Pale lavender flowers bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "There is some controversy about the exact origin of this plant. The story starts with 'Grecian Lace'. It was marketed as a variegated sport of 'Grecian Vase', a plant most hosta aficionados had never heard of. Jim Schwarz (Dubuque, Iowa) researched the origins of 'Grecian Vase' and was told in 2002 that it had "limey-green" foliage. Subsequently, Jim found a "limey-green" sport in his specimen of 'Grecian Lace' and assumed that he now had a plant of 'Grecian Vase'. End of story?...hardly. In 2004 a photo of 'Grecian Vase' appeared in the Hosta Library showing attractive, gold-centered, white-margined foliage. Still, based upon the few sources that describe 'Grecian Vase' as having chartreuse foliage, the Hosta Library photo depicts either a margined form of 'Grecian Lace' or a totally different plant."
