Description

Details

Blue-green with a wide irregular margin of chartreuse to yellow; varies from elongated to more rounded. Thick corrugated leaves are slug-resistant! A very popular hosta, No. 1 on polls for years. Can be susceptible to desiccation burn on the leaf margins if it receives too much sun in spring. Frances Williams was very influential in creating an interest in hostas, corresponding with hybridizers, botanists, and collectors beginning in the 1930's. This eventually led to the creation of the American Hosta Society.

We have two large clumps of FRANCES WILLIAMS growing in large pots under a Japanese Maple. Everyone who visits the garden is drawn to them. They just do beautifully. Large leaves and great color. (Posted on June 11, 2016)
