2010 Hosta of the Year

'First Frost'

H. First Frost

  • A sport of 'Halcyon' with the same intense blue-green leaf center
  • Emerges with a gold margin early in the spring, then changes to pure white later in the season
  • The leaves hold up well in the garden all season long until the "first frost"
  • Light lavender flowers appear on 28 inch scapes in midsummer

This fantastic sport of 'Halcyon' was developed by Patricia Scolnik of Chapel Hill, NC. The beautiful blue leaves are edged by a creamy-yellow margin that brightens to creamy-white by midsummer. Lavender flowers top the clump in late summer. This durable hosta received its name because it looks great until autumn's "first frost."
