id hosta description

alyciaadamo(3/4)June 7, 2011

on facebook I saw a picture of a Hosta leaf and was wondering what it was- It looks like it might be a medium to large hosta. The leaf is green in the middle then a large white margin then the edge is green again. The edge is also wavy, the shape of the leaf looks a little like a Montana A. leaf. I asked the person but because I don't know this person and they don't know me, they haven't responded and probably won't, who could blame them. It looks like a really interesting hosta and was wondering if it had a name.

Sounds like Hosta 'Quiet Waters'
It's not doing well in Tissue Culture, so it'll be a while till we see it in the marketplace. The people who discovered it have said "don't hold your breath for 2012"

Honestly, I think it's the most gorgeous hosta I've ever seen.

That is a very beautiful hosta, and if it's having difficulty in TC, then it's probably going to be a pricey one, I would think. Definitely one I would like to have.

From what I've read on another forum, looks like canadians are going to be the lucky one's that get first shot at it. It is a Beautiful Hosta, I'd sure love to have it in my collection!

aaaOOOOOga!
I'm envisioning that plant and a mature Lakeside Paisley Print in my yard.
A quick Google says there is also a Quiet Water Disturbed.
Any photos of THAT one?
Stunning.

I want this so bad, I feel like I'm going to give myself seizures if I look at the picture any longer.

To the hybridizer who has this little jewel in their back pocket I say-- Shut up and take my money.
