Rock Garden IconHummingbird Icon

Plant Type: Hostas

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.
