Hosta "Permanent Wave" review

12" tall. Light Shade. If ruffled leaves are your favorite, then you must try the late Pauline Banyai's Hosta 'Permanent Wave'. The long medium green leaves (16" long x 4" wide) are heavily rippled along the margins, forming the basis for an outstanding clump. In early summer, the clumps are topped with light lavender flowers on 20" scapes. Wavy lance-shaped medium green leaves; lavender flowers. Dark green leaves have an extremely attractive piecrust fluting. The leaves are held out to form a clump extraordinare! Lavender flowers. A medium hosta with wavy green leaves. Leaves are arrow shaped and measure 7" long by 3.5" wide with 6 veins. Scapes are 19" tall with medium funnel shaped lavender blooms. Long, narrow, pointed leaves, medium green, with undulating edges. Forms a very interesting clump. Pale lavender flowers.
