Hosta 'Moon Waves'
 

This cultivar was registered by Maria Plater-Zyberk and Bob Solberg of Green Hill Farm in North Carolina in 1994. According to The Hosta Handbook by Mark Zilis (2000), it is "...listed as a sport of 'August Moon' but no doubt a seedling;..."

This large size (16 to 20 inches high by 24 inches wide) mound has leaves that are very wavy along the margins and have a long, curved tip with good substance. It bears whitish flowers from late July into August on scapes up to 30 inches tall.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar "...is a good example of the difference between waves and ripples in a hosta...Ripples are much smaller, usually with many more per edge."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Should tolerate morning sun. An eye-catching hosta which needs careful placing...Exaggerated rippling almost distorts the leaf shape."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Mrs. Minky' and H. 'Ophir'.
