Hosta 'Brother Stefan' (Advanced Starter)

Special Price $13.95



Described by many as the most spectacular hosta they have ever seen. Beautiful gold-centered leaves are framed by a wide medium green border. In spring a glacous waxy coating makes the green margin look more blue and the center more chartreuse. Slug-resistant thick leaves have great substance and are nicely corrugated. Clump can reach 3' across and is topped with white flowers in late spring. The margin size varies between .50" to 3." Named to honor the hybridizer, Olga Petryszyn's, brother. Spectacular!
