Hosta 'Journey's End'
 

This slow growing cultivar was registered by Hans Hansen and Shady Oaks Nursery of Minnesota in 2004 and given a U.S. patent in 2006. It is a sport of H. 'Choo Choo Train' which becomes a large size (24 inches high by 68 inches wide) mound of rippled foliage that produces near white flowers from June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...only negative may be that in deeply shaded situations, the colors tend to be a bit muted, but that is easily avoided by siting it properly."

Similar hostas include H. 'Monsoon'.
