Hosta 'Plain Jane in an A-Line Skirt'
 

Registered by Charles Kwick of Wisconsin in 2017, this large size (18 inches high by 38 inches wide) cultivar is a seedling of H. montana 'Aureomarginata'. The medium green leaves are ovate, slightly folded, flat at the margins, slightly shiny on top and very shiny on the bottom. Medium lavender flowers with white stripes bloom from mid-July into August on scapes 24 to 36 inches tall.

The registration materials state: "...Very plain, velvet green foliage. Shiny reverse reveals a very narrow, almost unnoticeable line around the each leaf edge...darkens very slightly as the season progresses."

Of course, do not confuse this with H. 'Plain Jane in a Frilly Skirt'.
