InfoUnusual misting and mottling early.
'Pathfinder' sport developed at Q&Z nursery that exhibits beautifully misted foliage.
Like the irresistibly fun carnival treat, this fascinating sport of 'Pathfinder' will wrap you up with white leaves covered in a web of green mist.
The foliage is of good substance and brightest in the spring.
By late summer, the leaves will turn green.
This gives Hosta 'Cotton Candy' a surprisingly vigorous growth rate for a plant of this type.
