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.

- It might be my favorite!
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!
