Hosta 'Paver'

Registered by Madelon Gilligan of New Zealand in 2018, this upright growing cultivar is a medium size (11 inches high by 31 inches wide) seedling of H. 'Clovely'. The heavily rippled foliage is dark green, broadly ovate, deeply wavy and very shiny on top. Pale purple flowers bloom December into January (June into July) on scapes 30 to 34 inches tall. It sets seeds but their viability was not known at the time of registration.

The registration materials state: "...Handsome, shiny green, elegant plant with wavy leaves that have a distinct twisted curl at the tip. It differs from H. 'Clovelly' in that it has narrower, darker green leaves with no white underside & smooth (not pebbled) top surface...Strong, upright petioles hold leaves outright to better display the curled tips...medium purple buds open to reveal pale purple petals with white center streak and translucent edges...Shiny, dark green color holds the entire season."
