Descriptions (from various sources):
Aptly named, this medium to large sized hosta forms a coarsely textured mound of leathery, puckered, heart-shaped to round leaves of good substance.
It is a wide-margined sport of the long-popular 'Dick Ward', which is named for one of the most accomplished Hosta breeders in the US.
Its leaves display wide, blue-green margins with chartreuse centers that become yellow in summer.
Near-white flowers appear atop chartreuse scapes in early summer.
