Butterfly IconHummingbird Icon

Plant Type: Hostas

Large blue-green leaves are edged in chartreuse and acquire a puckered texture with age.

This variegated sport of H. Sieboldiana Elegans offers a very wide yellow-green-to-cream margin on large, flat, blue-green leaves. A fine source of cool tones for the shady garden,

The plant is 32 to 36 inches tall and about 30 to 36 inches wide, with large, heart-shaped leaves of icy blue-green. The margins are generous and jagged, beginning chartreuse at the edges but tending toward cream as they join the blue. Very showy!
