Hosta 'One Last Dance'

Registered by Hans Hansen at Walters Gardens, Inc. of Michigan in 2020, this fast growing, giant size (35 inches high by 73 inches wide) cultivar is a sport of H. 'Dancing Queen'. It is a green hosta with a yellow marginal variegation. The ovate leaves are slightly wavy, very lightly corrugated, slightly rippled and dull on top with tips that face downwards. Near white flowers with a lavender band in the interior of the petals bloom from mid-June into July.

The registration materials state: "...Dramatic margins of varying width have irregular patterns creating an elegant feathered look...Contrast is greatest in the spring as the yellow margins turn more green later in the season."

U.S. Plant Patent: PP30.000
