Hosta 'Nightlife'

This hybrid of H. 'Invincible' x H. sieboldiana 'Elegans' was registered by Mark Zilis in 2004. The plant grows to 18 inches in height and 40 inches wide. Its leaves are ovate, slightly wavy, slightly corrugated and have good substance. In July, it bears fragrant, pale purple flowers.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "The fragrance is not as pronounced as 'Invincible' or Hosta plantaginea, reaching its peak in mid-morning."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Moonlight Sonata'.
