Descriptions:
Twelve inch long corrugated green leaves with purple petioles. Near white fragrant flowers on 40" scapes.
An outstanding new introduction from a cross of plantaginea and 'Regal Rhubarb'. Large green leaves, nicely veined with some puckering, are held upright on long dark purple petioles. Large fragrant near white flowers.
Vase shape, red stems.
Bred from the difficult H. plantaginea. After hundreds of tries, Indiana's master hybridizer Olga Petryszyn collected one.... the only seed. It grew to be a fast growing, glossy green hosta with reddish petioles. To Olga's satisfaction, the large white flowers are wonderfully fragrant and the form beautiful to look at. Give 'Old Faithful' a good amount of light for maximum flowering. A keeper!
