Like the soldiers we are honoring, this is a tough, durable hosta that reliably displays strong, bold variegation all season long. It is a sport of 'Revolution' with wider, dark green margins and a creamy white to pure white center speckled with green. The thick leaves form a very dense clump, and as the plant matures they become somewhat twisted. Lavender flowers top the clump in midsummer.
This "tough as nails" new introduction has heavy substance.
This new introduction has heavy substance. Wide dark green borders surround a white center with green flecks. The leaves twist somewhat and make a dense clump topped with lavender flowers. Proving to be a vigorous grower.
