Hosta 'First Frost'

Plant Type: Hostas

This Patricia Scolnik discovery adds a nice creamy-yellow margin to the attractive blue leaves of the parent. The result is a wide clump of attractive blue leaves with a border of creamy yellow that ages to white by season’s end. The clumps are topped with tall scapes of light lavender in mid-summer.A sport of the classic blue Hosta ‘Halcyon’. Beautiful powder blue leaves edged with creamy white margins. Grows well all season and requires very little attention. Lavender flowers atop the sturdy clumps in August. Thick durable leaves are slug resistant and this hosta continues to look great all the way through autumn’s first frost.
