Descriptions:
Center stays white.
This selection of H. 'Whirlwind' was named because it holds the white center throughout the season, leaves have a very wide dark green margin around the white center and the leaf tends to be fairly flat rather than twisted. Topped with lavender flowers in summer.
A perfect TEN! You are going to flip over this new sport of the popular Hosta 'Whirlwind'. From the garden of Minnesota's Hans Hansen comes one of the most stunning hostas of all time. The quilted black-green leaves serve as the perfect foil for a brilliant central pattern of eye-blasting white that does not fade like its parent. Each 2' wide clump is topped by 15" tall spikes of light lavender flowers in midsummer.
