Plant Type: Hostas
Aptly named, this medium to large sized hosta forms a coarsely textured mound of leathery, puckered, heart-shaped to round leaves of good substance.
It is a wide-margined sport of the long-popular 'Dick Ward', which is named for one of the most accomplished Hosta breeders in the United States. Its leaves display wide, blue-green margins with chartreuse centers that become yellow in summer.
Near-white flowers appear atop chartreuse scapes in early summer.
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.
