Hosta 'Mardi Gras'
 

This hybrid of H. 'Christmas Tree Gala' × H. 'Elatior' was registered by Olga Petryszyn of Indiana in 2001. The mound grows into a large size hosta about 21 inches in height by 70 inches in width. It has slightly wavy, slightly corrugated leaves. Pale lavender flowers bloom in July followed by viable seeds.

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "A superb background hosta. Grow with H. 'Daybreak' to light up a dark corner. The leaves retain a blue overlay in low light...Subtle tonal variegation which is lacking in the leaf of its sibling H. 'All That Jazz'."

Similar hostas include H. 'Mike Shadrack' and H. 'Sagae'.
