'Jean Harlow') × [(H. nigrescens × H. 'Blue Whirls') × (H. nigrescens × H. hypoleuca)]}. It is a medium green colored hosta with a pale yellow marginal variegation.

The broadly ovate leaves are slightly wavy, slightly shiny on top, slightly twisted and slightly corrugated. Near white flowers with pale lavender stripes bloom from late June into July on scapes 40 to 48 inches tall. It sets viable seeds in green pods.
