Lovely Hosta - but which one is it?

HotwaxHotwax Posts: 51
Hallo. I’ve followed this forum for years and years but only posted once or twice. There are so many amazingly knowledgable people out there so I’m hoping someone (Hostafan)will recognise this Hosta which i’ve had for ages, probably more than 20 years. The labels long gone, i’m afraid. I’ve looked on a lot of websites, but with no luck. Please bear with me as I try to upload the photo, my first time!

    It looks very like my Hosta undulata



    but there are so many very similar ones. 

    @Hostafan1  is at work today but hopefully he’ll see this when he next pops in ... but even he is likely to say there are just so many that are very similar it’s impossible to give a firm ID ... the difference between one variety and another is sometimes down to a difference in the petioles. 

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    Yes, you’re right! I knew it wasn’t a named variety but just couldn’t remember what it was. Thank you, dove! I’ve always enjoyed and been impressed by your comments and you haven’t disappointed!

    I'd say H. u. mediovariegata
    Devon.
