Hosta 'Dark Star'

This cultivar is a cross between H. 'Swoosh' and H. 'Hadspen Heron' was registered by Roy Herold in 1999. It forms a large (21 inches high) mound of foliage with prominent waves and margins that may streak. Medium purple flowers bloom in July to August.

 The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009) states "The rapidly rising popularity of 'Dark Star' is not surprising considering its striking combination of wavy, white-margined foliage, dense mound habit and good growth rate."
