InfoThis often un-ruley looking floppy leaved grey green hosta is the product of a cross between 'Calamity Jane' and hypoleuca. I was able to produce variegated seedlings from this cross but this sibling is beautiful for its desire to probe its depths. It is the result of seeing the effects of both parents in a seedling and was a wonderfully produced result. This plant plus the variagated unregistered seedlings are a part of current hybridizing evaluation. Early results show that all the strong ancestral qualities of its forebears is providing interesting early results.
