Hosta 'Rippled Honey'

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), the result of a cross of H. ventricosa x H. plantaginea, this cultivar was developed by Dr. Ralph (Herb) Benedict of Michigan. However, it was registered by Peter and Jean Ruh of Ohio in 2005 as parentage unknown.

It is an upright, fast growing hosta that becomes a medium to large size plant about 18 inches high by 31 inches wide. The light green leaves are moderately cupped, slightly twisted, slightly folded and slightly shiny on top. Deep lavender flowers bloom in August on scapes 28 to 34 inches tall.

In an article in The Hosta Journal (2016 Vol. 47 No 2), the author described this plant's flowers as having a "Weak" fragrance compared to other hostas.
