Miniature sport of H. montana 'Aureomarginata'. Sport from TC.
A sport of H. montana 'Aureomarginata' with smaller leaves, green with a rippled yellow margin that streaks a bit into the center. The growth is upright and the leaves turn downward, giving the plant a cascading habit. Near-white flowers with lavender stripes.
Picture one of the most popular hostas, H. montana 'Aureomarginata' and shrink the plant by 1/3 while adding heavy rippling to the leaves and you have Hosta 'Ebb Tide'. This stunning release from Michigan's Ed Elslager makes a 3' wide clump of pointed green leaves, each surrounded by a rippled golden border. In early summer, the clumps are topped with 3' scapes of pure white flowers. This is a truly unique clump that is certain to make a dazzling specimen in your garden.
