Go Back First Dance

Hosta 'First Dance'

Plant Type: Hostas

This sport of ‘Dancing Queen’ has a wide yellow center and green margins. Rippled leaf margins, varying from 1/4 to 1/2″ wide, jet into the leaf center, giving the plant a graceful appearance. This hosta forms an upright mound-shape clump. The intense yellow centers mellow to chartreuse by midsummer. Pale lavender flowers appear above the foliage mid to late summer on arching flower scapes. A great specimen plant for the shade garden.
