Hosta 'Zany Janie'

Registered by Dr. Dick Ward and Jane Ward of Ohio in 2009, this cultivar is a sport of H. 'Pin Stripe Sister'. It is a medium to large size hosta about 18 inches high by 62 inches wide with medium green foliage that has yellow to white streaked variegation. The broadly ovate leaves are heavily rippled, moderately wavy and have variegated petioles. Pale lavender flowers bloom from mid-July into August on variegated scapes up to 30 inches tall followed by viable seeds.

The registration materials state: "...excellent pod parent for variegated seedlings."

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Hybridizers should consider using this as a starting point in the development of better floral bracts in hostas."
