Descriptions:
=plantaginea 'Athena'.
Beautiful hosta with white streaked leaves, and large,fragrant white, DOUBLE flowers in August - Sept. Sport of H. plantaginea.
Bob thinks it is a different clone then the normal 'Aphrodite'. The flowers are bigger and thicker. It would be blooming real well until the first day that the temperature went below 50. Then it was done. The blooms would just sit there for a while and then dry up.

Progeny:
