A medium sized hosta with thick, cupped, nearly round leaves and a slower growth rate
In spring, creamy yellow center, blue margins, and lighter green jetting towards the center
As the season progresses, the leaves become slightly puckered and turn creamy white with blue-green margins
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.
