Hosta 'Niagra Falls'

A cross between Hosta montana macrophylla and H. 'Sea Drift', this cultivar was jointly registered by William Brincka and Olga Petryszyn in 1991. It is a slow growing, giant size (33 inches high by 60 inches wide), semi-upright mound of deeply lobed, dark green foliage. The leaves are heavily rippled, deeply veined and have thick substance. Pale lavender flowers with whitish bracts bloom in July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Anyone who lusts after piecrust-margined hostas should put 'Niagara Falls' at the top of their list. The large size mound size and vase-shaped habit accentuate this trait. It also rates as one of Olga Petryszyn's finest introductions and is a testament to her careful selection process."
