One of the very best hostas to come from Mary Chastain!  This stunning hosta produces heart-shaped leaves with very wide, wavy, green margins.  The narrow, creamy white markings in the center of the leaves shoot out from the cream colored petioles in a feathery pattern. 

Its thick substanced leaves make the perfect background for the cream scapes that carry the light lavender flowers in midsummer.

Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today's gardens due to their versatility in the landscape. Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. Hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust, etc.
