Hosta 'Sing Your Camel to Bed'
 

Originated by Naylor Creek Nursery in Washington, this non-registered cultivar is a sport of H. 'Midnight at the Oasis'. The leaves have the reverse variegation pattern of the mother plant. In the spring, the slightly corrugated foliage emerges chartreuse colored with green medial (center) variegation. As the summer progresses, the leaves become progressively darker with some streaking. In the fall, the leaves are dark green. It is a medium size plant about 14 inches tall by 22 inches wide. Lavender flowers bloom from late July into August.

Midnight at the Oasis was a song by Maria Muldaur from 1973. The lyrics include the line, "Send your camel to bed" so this is a play on those lyrics...we guess.
