This spectacular introduction is touted as the best new hosta in years! This sport of H. 'Fortunei Hyacinthina' has a wide central band of white that contrasts dramatically with the darkest green leaf that we have seen. In dense shade, the central variegation tends to fade in the summer. The 18" wide clumps are topped with lavender flowers in mid summer.
The leaves have outstanding substance and twist as they reach upward, they are white, yellowish and yellow green with a dark green margin that varies in width; lavender flowers.
One of the most popular newer introductions, with white centered, very dark green leaves, slightly twisted and curved, held upright in a tight mound. A good vigorous grower with good substance. The leaf center can change through the season, depending on exposure, from creamy to bright white to light green. A sport.
Upright, twisting and pointing, the foliage is rich dark green a with white center. Lavender flowers.
