Hosta 'Minke'

Originated by Molter Nurseries in the Netherlands, this non-registered cultivar is of unidentified parentage. But according to one catalog, "looks like a combination of 'Frances Williams' and 'Sagae'." It is a giant size hosta with upright habit and blue-green, heavily corrugated foliage with a yellow marginal variegation. Pale lavender flowers bloom from July into August.

The minke whale or lesser rorqual, is a type of baleen whale.
