Hosta 'Waving Blue Banana'

Originated by Mary Vertz of Wisconsin, this cultivar was registered in 2021 as a sport of H. 'Giantland Blue Banana'. It is a large size (24 inches high by 46 inches wide) hosta with intensely blue-green foliage. The broadly ovate leaves are heavily twisted, moderately folded and heavily corrugated. It bears medium purple, tubular shape flowers with stripes from June into July and sets seed but their viability was not known at the time of registration.

According to the Registration materials: "Very unruly plant with deeply corrugated leaves that twist and wave in the air.  Some leaves are folded and upright, other leaves form a lower ring offering another dimension to the overall green through early July turning deep green thereafter..."
