A mound of green leaves with white margins; white margins tend to loose variegation over the season. This variety produces lavender flowers.
Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with hundreds of varieties now readily available. Plants form sturdy mounds of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This medium-sized heirloom selection has dark-green leaves streaked with lighter green, and a wide creamy-white margin. Lavender flowers appear in July. Great for massing or edging. Hosta go completely dormant in the fall, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid spring. Easily divided in either spring or fall, but plants may be left alone for years. Slugs may need to be controlled.
