Hosta Heritage Lines
Undulata (Nagasaki (Japan)) – (Bailey 1930/George Schmid/AHS 2001) – progeny includes ‘White Feather‘
Sports that have come from Undulata Albomarginata, include those from top hosta breeders (Ed Elslager, Jan van den Top and George Schmid) …from streaked to white.
‘Apparition’ (Brian Roston)
‘Mostly Ghostly’ from New Zealand – pure white in the spring and over a period of time, green flecks appear throughout the leaves. Leaves turn all green by midsummer.
‘Spartan Flash’ (Ed Elslager 1998) some say it is a Streaked breeder
‘White Beauty‘ (Jan van den Top 2002) some leaves are completely white
‘White Trouble’ (George Schmid) will get a lot of green streaking when detached from the main plant
