Look up Hosta nigrescens, perhaps the 'original' vase-shaped Hosta.

fwiw,

Billy,

How could you not suggest Rascal, as it is one of your favorites? What's not to like? A cool light green color that changes during the season, tall, vigorous. A great Hosta. Sport of Gold Regal.

As suggested by SteveMASS, yes, indeed, Rascal is perfect for your description, and is Gold Regal, the latter a long time and forever fave of mine.

fwiw,

This H. 'Cadillac' has a nice vase shape. I planted it only this year, got it from Land of the Giants.

garden_crazy, After I got so many green center with yellow or white margin hostas, I try to concentrate now on center variegated ones, so I like 'Cadillac'.

I like to buy from where I will get good size crowns and more than one eye. Large leaves and more than one eye suggest that I will see a happy more mature plant next spring. Life is short, why should I wait too many years to see a mature plant? In contrast, I bought some one-eye plants elsewhere years ago and they are still one eye.

Besides plain green of any shade, my weakness is for the light yellow/cream/white centers with any size green margin. Your Cadillac is a beauty, Bernd.

I also like the light centers which end up streaking and turning darker, like Golden Meadows does. It has so much going on.
