You won’t be sorry! Review by Cher

Excellent height, fast growth and spread! It’s only my second year with this one from starter and it has achieved two good sized plants with really nice height and color. This is going nicely next to my third year Empress Wu! Nice contrast, nice flower stems too. Couldn’t be happier! (Posted on May 31, 2018)

Easily established and wish I would have provided more room when I planted it. Originally purchased because I loved the name, but now I just love the plant (Posted on June 14, 2016)

I love the lime or light green center and dark blue-green margin. Even in mostly shade it has grown well albeit slowly. Certainly worth the wait. Put this one on your want list. (Posted on September 15, 2015)

This lovely hosta is one of my top 2 or 3, possibly #1. The colors are fantastic, and depending on sun exposure, variable. The flowers are like no other hostas I grow. Normally, I cut off the pallid lavender droopy flowers - I've never liked hosta flowers. But these! Large, incredibly fragrant, beautiful white. I just wish mine grew faster!
