Hosta of the Day - capitata

capitata is a medium sized plant with a slight wave in the leaf. It is a species. The flower-head forms a "ball" shape.

Registry - not registered - it is species

I have had this plant for at least eight seasons. It has stayed small and survived the deer fence being put on top of it.

Here it is in 2010.

There was some discussion about a white-flowered H. capitata on FB recently. Seemed odd to me.
