Unique hosta
We are in our second growing year for the hosta and several of them are starting to flower. Very unique and beautiful!

Beautiful, excited to see it grow
I bought several of these and expect them to grow well. I am watering (heat of the summer) to make sure they don't scorch, and anticipate they will all thrive. Thank you!

One of the Best for Fragrance!
This is one of the most fragrant hostas on the market. Very large white flowers that you will enjoy from far or near!

One of My Favorite Hostas
I love this Hosta. My favorite for the beautiful white flowers that look like tall small gardenias in the garden.
