Hosta 'Janet'

This medium size (17 inches high) plant is a sport of H. 'Fortunei' and has smooth textured foliage with average substance. It bears pale lavender flowers that bloom from late July into August. This cultivar was registered by Russ O'Harra of Iowa in 1981.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Over the years I've noticed that specimens of 'Janet' vary a bit. In the 1980s, most had fairly narrow, medium green margins, but now many exhibit much wider, darker green margins. The latter group may just be the effect of good, fertile growing conditions, but some probably could be classified as wider-margined sports."

The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2000) calls this "...a smaller version of 'Gold Standard' with thinner green margins."
