Hosta 'Picadello'

This large size cultivar is a stabilized form of H. 'Shenanigans' that was registered by Nancy Krul of Belle Gardens in Michigan 1995. It grows to about 22 inches in height and width of 53 inches with corrugated, slightly wavy foliage. The pale lavender flowers bloom in mid-July.

According to The Hosta Handbook by Mark Zilis (2000), "Almost any clump of 'Shenanigans' will stabilize to a green-centered, creamy-margined form. 'Picadello' is another case of a sport that eventually became more popular than its streaked mother plant."
