Plant Finder: about Hosta undulata var. albomarginata

Common names

Wavy-leaf plantain lily

Description

Hosta undulata var. albomarginata (Wavy-leaf plantain lily). This also goes under the name of H. 'Thomas Hogg'. Oval to lance-shaped, dark green leaves with cream edges are borne.

Cultivation

All Hostas need some shade and few will thrive in open strong sunlight. A general rule is that the lighter foliage, the brighter the sunlight that will be tolerated. Variegated varieties tend to require more sun to keep their white, light green or gold stripes. The darker, bluer varieties need more shade.

Once established, Hostas are pretty tough and will spread horizontally to make excellent ground cover.

    Unusual varieties of hostas. I have about 500 different varieties and am looking for more. Can offer about 1/3rd of these to swap (hosta for hosta), most of which are listed.
    Also named varieties of Agapanthus (I have 4 varieties to swap)
    Will sell plants as well if requested although not set up to post (other than for hostas sent bare-rooted) so buyer will need to collect.
