Large blue-green leaves with a gold-chartreuse margin. Heavy substance and white flowers. Large mound size at maturity. This Eldrin Minks gem is a past winner of the prestigious Savory Shield Award, and is the heir-apparent to H. ‘Frances Williams’. The broad-spreading clump to 40″ wide is composed of elongated blue-green leaves with a bold, golden edge… absolutely no “leaf burning”. The stunning clumps are topped with white flowers on 4′ tall scapes in early summer… a distinctive new look in hostas!
