  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Flowering period: summer
  • Flower colour: lavender
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A striking new Hosta, the large leaves emerge creamy white in late spring, but soon after green streaks develop and these gradually spread until the whole leaf has turned a lush shade of green. Primarily grown for this colourful foliage, the sprays of lavender flowers which appear from midsummer are an added bonus. A relatively compact plant, it looks great at the front of the border, and also makes a great specimen for a pot.

  • Garden care:Surround plants with a ring of crushed eggshells to offer protection from slug damage. Lift and divide over-large clumps every 2-3 years.

  • Q:

    How wide will this gorgeous plant spread? I'm new to hostas but I'm planning a "hosta corner" in my garden so I want to be sure that I get the correct spacing.

      Hello there
      This Hosta is quite a compact form, so will grow to about 35cm wide.

      A:

      Morning
      The leaves on this Hosta will emerge white, but then start to turn green as they develop and grow.
      The 2 plants where the leaves are curling over and going brown sound as though they are being scorched, so if possible I would move them to a shadier part of the garden.
      Hope this helps
