ID please

This is a mature plant. Obtained about 5 years ago as a large division from a family member. Probably a commonly available plant, as they are not hosta collectors. Bloomed in early July, light purple. I'll post a close up leaf shot in the next message.

I'd appreciate any efforts to name this one.

Here is the leaf shot.

Any seed pods on those scapes? If not it's likely Undulata Albomarginata. It's sterile.

Need more data HH. My sim Summer Fragrance took me days and days to ID. I borrowed Hostapedia from a foreign library for 6 weeks cataloging all the look similars.

Here's my neighbor Bobbi's NOID I'd only took today. It only has 5vp and white flowers. I don't know if it is fragrant. Don't mean to raid your thread. I'll be posting this along with others tommorrow after taking measurements. Just wanted to show how tough gn/wh's can be without details.

I promised to cataloque hers and have 19 in her front yard alone. So far I have only IDs on about 4.

Good luck on this one.

It's Undulata Albomarginata, probably the most common plant out there. And the picture that hostaLes posted is So Sweet.

Thanks Chris-I went out last night and took a sniff and it was mildly fragrant so this am I was going to HL data base & check So sweet.

Now I can move on to her other 15-16 NOID's.

Moccasin(z9aMobileAL) is always fun to read the NOID threads, very educational too.

Hoping never to endure another spate of NOID problems, I am a "belt and suspenders" kind of gardener....I stick the nursery tag in the side of the pot below surface level, and then put my "made" tags where they'll show when I take pictures.

My worst nightmare is trying to ID a green with white margins. Or a plain green. Seems like I have a lot of those. In this thread, we got two for the price of one, taken off the mystery NOID list. How cool is that!!
