Ranging from dark blue-green to white, and every color in between, these hardy plants add bright beauty and loads of interest to even the most darkened corners of the landscape from late spring through early fall. Most hosta bear tall, arching sprays of white or lavender, funnel-shaped blooms in summer; some even emit a delicate perfume that attracts pollinators such as butterflies and beneficial bees. Rock gardens, woodland areas, shadowed borders and shady cutting gardens are perfect for hosta plants.

Unique CharactersticsImagine a little girl with long, curly locks twirling around on a merry go round, her hair waving in the wind. That's the visual I get when I think of the delightfully ruffled leaves of this fun new Hosta. Extremely ruffled, cream colored margins extend from the tip of each green leaf all the way down the petiole to the crown. This ruffled margin is evident even in the juvenile stage of the plant before vernalization. The leaves of this medium sized hosta are of excellent substance, making them slug resistant in the landscape.
