Hosta 'Lois Jane'

Registered by Marc Milbradt of Minnesota in 2016, this upright, small size (8 inches high by 12 inches wide) cultivar is a seedling of H. 'Sea Lightning'. The leaves are medium green with creamy white streaked variegation. Its foliage is lanceolate, relatively flat and dull on top with petioles that are also streaked. Pale purple flowers with white stripes bloom from mid-July into August on burgundy colored scapes up to 30 inches tall. Blooms are followed by burgundy colored seed pods.

The registration materials state: "Rippled, slightly wavy leaves are heavily streaked green and white. Streaks run all the way down the petiole."

Almost included some information about Superman's (or Clark Kent's) love interest...but then took a second look at the name of this hosta.
