Common Name: Hosta
This gorgeous large hosta forms an incredibly showy, cascading clump of green and white variegated foliage. Larger than its parent overall, its foliage is notably upright in youth, but quickly develops into a gracefully arching mound. The long, tapered, pointed leaves have bright green margins which jet towards the clear white center. The leaves are also of greater substance than its parent.
In early summer, creamy white scapes carry light lavender flowers.
Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today's gardens due to their versatility in the landscape. Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. Hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust, etc.
