Hosta 'Guidon'
 

This non-registered cultivar from Wm Zumbar of Ohio is of unidentified parentage. It makes a medium size mound about 18 inches high and 49 inches wide with highly variable, streaked foliage. Pale lavender flowers bloom in mid-July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...appears to be a heavily streaked 'Fortunei' type.. .closely match 'Fortunei Hyacinthina'..."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Itasca' and H. 'Thea'.

(The specimen above which was photographed in the Wade & Gatton collection in 2010, seems to have reverted back to its all green form. - Mr PGC)

A guidon is a type of flag like the one pictured above.
