Description:

Lush foliage clumps with dramatic, heart-shaped, dark green leaves edged in white - truly a standout in the landscape. The mounding foliage with beautiful variegation is ideal for those sometimes difficult to fill shady woodland areas and borders. A wonderful hosta for containers. An herbaceous perennial.

Design Ideas: This is a great mound of gorgeous variegated leaves that turn the darkest corner into a fountain of light. Use as scattered relief amidst darker Hosta or other evergreen groundcover. A moderate grower, this Hosta makes a good filler between flowering shrubs or among Fern. Excellent specimen in a pot all by itself and particularly beautiful in classical Roman urns on steps and terrace edges.

Provide enriched, slightly acidic, evenly moist, well-drained soil. Avoid harsh sun exposures. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. For a tidy appearance, remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge.
