Hosta 'Frances Williams'

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. (Photos courtesy of Walters Gardens, Inc.)
