Hosta 'New Wave'

This cultivar was registered in 1988 by Mark Zilis of Illinois and Doug Lohman of Ohio. It is a hybrid of H. 'Sum and Substance' × a H. venusta seedling which grows into a medium size hosta about 13 inches in height and 35 inches in width. The leaves are very broadly ovate shaped and slightly wavy. Pale lavender flowers bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), this cultivar came from the same seed pod as 'Golden Decade', 'Leather Sheen', 'Little Razor', and 'Courtesy'."

Of the five plants registered from seeds that all came from one seedpod, 3 ('Leather Sheen', 'Little Razor' and 'New Wave') were jointly registered by Doug Lohman and Mark Zilis. The other 2 ('Golden Decade' and 'Courtesy') were registered solely by Mark Zilis.
