This cultivar is from the
Netherlands and was registered in 2005 by
Gerardus Heemskerk of
Heemskerk Vaste Planten as a
sport of H. 'Undulata'. The leaves of this
medium size (14 inches high by 25 inches wide) plant are
elliptic shaped, wavy and have average substance. It bears pale
purple, funnel shaped flowers in July but rarely sets seeds.
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "Slow to moderate growth rate. Very vulnerable to
pest damage. Dramatic and unusual as the white leaves are, the foliage is also
very effective as a streaky-leaved hosta...As the streaking develops, the
outline of the veins appears as a ghostly impression."
