Hosta 'Savannah'

This large size (25 inches high) cultivar of unidentified parentage was registered in 1999 by Mark Zilis of Illinois. It has slightly wavy, ovate shaped foliage that is moderately shiny underneath. The fragrant, lavender flowers open in August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Sometime during the mid-1980s, Natalee Suggs of Alabama sent me a plant that she had received many years before from Paul Aden of New York. The plant had a few streaks in the leaves and produced fragrant flowers. After propagating it for a number of years, we were able to introduce three forms from the original plant, 'Savannah' (leaves white-margined, green-centered), 'Savannah Emerald' (green), and 'Savannah Supreme' (heavily streaked)."
