- Beautiful Hostas!!
These hostas are quite striking! It took a little longer for them to grow in my area, but they are well worth the wait.

- very nice hosta
I really like the various shades of green blending into the white center. Very attractive. Mine gets several hours and early afternoon sun (western Michigan) and stays beautiful all season.

- Great Border Plant
Use this Hosta all the time as a border plant along walks and beds. It is a perfect size, does not turn brown, and seems to be slub resistant. Love the dark green set against the pure white.... A must have for Hosta gardens and bed plantings.
