 Common Name: Hosta

This darling miniature hosta was named for its pronounced, heavily wavy margins reminiscent of the ocean waves. 

Each pointed, dark green leaf measures only 2” long x 1” wide, but since the plant is stoloniferous like H. venusta, it fills in to form a nice little patch.  Pale purple, tubular flowers rise well above the foliage in midsummer. 

Use this hosta as a small scale groundcover or in containers.
