This medium sized hosta grows to about 18 inches wide and 15 inches tall. It is white with a dark green edge which is twisted and wavy. The white center is misted with tiny green speckles that make it look misty. The white area turns light green later in the season. Lavender flowers appear in mid-June.
This award winning mini hosta is dramatically different with its very narrow and very wavy, lance shaped, green leaves. The red petioles get darker as the summer heats up and the lavender flowers attract hummingbirds. Nice in the rock garden or as an edger.

One of the most unusual hosta around; extremely long, rippled dark green leaves have a waxy shine and a very thin yellow margin. The leaves are held straight upright and are folded and wavy, giving a twisted appearance.
These will never be mistaken for another hosta and they look interesting placed among the mounding hostas.
Light lavender flowers will appear midsummer. Amazing!
Each small 18″ wide clump resembles many hands folded in prayer.
This small charmer has pointy lance shaped leaves that have very ruffled edges. It is impressive with its green very shiny leaves, with a thick yellow margin, that seem to bend in many directions. The lavender flowers are also unusual in that that they are striped with white.

Hacksaw is a miniature hosta that grows quickly and has long, thin, tapered leaves that are appear serrated, due to the very rippled edges. I must get a better photo next year as the plant is much wavier than shown here. The leaves are about 6 inches long and less than an inch wide. It’s so unusual that it really does not even look like a hosta. The lavender flowers appear very late in the season, but it will set seed if the season is long enough. The plant can form patches up to 2 feet wide given time, but it gets no taller than 8 inches. The Parentage is ‘Atom Smasher’ x ‘Stiletto’. Hacksaw is the winner of the William and Eleanor Lachman Award. This plant is fairly sun tolerant. The light green leaves will just be lighter in more sun.

“Elvis lives” is popular for its wavy edged blue-grey leaves. The long, narrow, tapered leaves are medium sized. The heavy substance and light powdering on the underside gives it a suede appearance and the top of the leaf is a bit shiny. The fountain shaped plant grows to about 18” tall and can be 3 feet across when mature. Lavender flowers appear in spring on 22 inch scapes. It is a cross of Peter Pan and Green Fountain. It is best in part shade.
