From England, comes this wildly popular creamy centered sport of the old standard H. 'Halcyon'. Each leaf emerges with blue edges and a brilliant creamy center that gradually changes to dark chartreuse. This is one of those shockingly beautiful hostas that stands out as soon as you spot it in the garden. We recommend some morning sun for best coloration. The 15" wide clumps are topped with violet flowers in early summer on 20" scapes.
One of the best new hostas to come to market in recent years! This super sport of H. 'Halcyon' has a leaf with a gold center and a wide blue margin. In cooler climates it will hold it's variegation all season but where it's warmer it may fade. Superior substance and pest resistance--when all the other hostas have gone to sleep in the fall you will probably still find H. 'June' hanging on. Lavender flowers.
This is the new gold centered form of 'Halcyon'. The leaves are a rich, powdery gold, with a narrow blue edge. The color is best in fairly bright light, tending to yellow-green in deep shade. Flowers are pale lavender. I really don't think I've seen any new introductions that I like better than this one.
