If you are looking for a hosta that quite a few unique features, then look no further than Hosta 'Marilyn Monroe'.  Not only does this hosta have red petioles, but it also has white backs and leaves that are slightly glossy.  The leaves are light green and rounded with a very wavy edge.  A hosta that is similar in shape is hosta 'Grand Slam', but the leaves on 'Marilyn Monroe' are more consistently wavy.  Pair this hosta with blue, white or gold variegated, dark green, or gold hostas.
