Descriptions:
Hybrid of H. 'Dorothy Benedict' x H. hypoleuca from the Ed Elslager breeding program: improves on H 'Northern Halo' and other white-edged sieboldiana types.
This "star" hosta resulted from a cross of famed breeder H. 'Dorothy Benedict' with
H. hypoleuca, giving this plant some hybrid vigor compared to 'Northern Halo' type
hostas. The edge is a subtle gold in spring, turning creamy white as the season
progresses, often with a nice Milky Way effect where the colors meet. And the edge
stays nice and clean all season, compared to many hostas with a similar look.
This will be a large hosta, to 40" wide.
It makes a nice bouquet of near-white flowers in early summer.
