Description

Details

Double blooms if placed in plenty of sun! Very fragrant, large, 6" white flowers. Beautiful green shiny leaves. It is a little challenging to get it to bloom; we found that a little extra sun makes the blooms open. Smooth texture, average substance. Fast grower. This hosta, technically H. plantagenia 'Aphrodite' is a sport from plantagenia, the only species hosta with fragrance.
