InfoThis hosta is wonderfully cupped when it reaches maturity. Very unusual, in that each spring it comes up a rather ugly gray/green in color. Nothing special for sure, and perhaps even looks like it belongs on the compost heap. Come June, a faint variegation first appears, only to become more and more pronounced with the passing summer days. Finally, as July begins, the contrasting colors and variegation come into full contrast. Younger plants have good color, variegation, and some cupping. With maturity comes the best cupping.
