Wheee! Hosta – Back at First Look 6, Bill Meyer hoped he would finally get him one of the awards at First Look that had eluded him since he put the whole Seedling and Sport Competition there together five years before. Well, it worked as it received a remarkable unanimous vote from the judges and over 80% of the attendee vote to send him home with not one but two of the major awards!

That’s the visual I get when I think of the delightfully ruffled leaves of this fun new Hosta. Extremely ruffled, cream colored margins extend from the tip of each green leaf all the way down the petiole to the crown. This ruffled margin is evident even in the juvenile stage of the plant before vernalization. The leaves of this medium sized hosta are of excellent substance, making them slug resistant in the landscape. Light lavender flowers appear atop purple scapes in midsummer.
