Hosta 'Megan's Angel'
 

Registered by Dr. Doug and Mardy Beilstein of Ohio in 2009, this fast growing, upright cultivar is a sport of an unnamed, streaked form of H. 'Blue Angel'. This hosta grows into a large size plant about 22 inches high by 54 inches wide. It is a dark green hosta with creamy white marginal variegation. The leaves are broadly ovate, slightly rippled and have a glaucous bloom on top with twisted tips. Its flowers bloom on scapes 34 to 36 inches tall.

According to the registration materials: "...fast growing, flat leaf, creamy white border of 1 inch or more, erect with petioles easily seen, soft glacous top of leaf gives hosta a warm look..."

The originator made the following comment on the Fraternal Order of Seedy Fellows website: "Our daughter Megan brought me the original streaked H. 'Blue Angel' and after many years of separation a fast growing, beautiful creamy white edged hosta emerged. A soft glaucous top gives this plant our angelic look. Not in production."
