An excellent medium sized Hosta with dark green leaves with a wide pure white margin. One of the best green and white cultivars around. Tall spikes of Lavender flowers appear in mid summer. Grow in moist, well drained soil in partial shade. Good ground cover or specimen for a pot. Hostas make superb specimens for a pot and this is the easiest way to protect them from slugs.
