This one comes from Marco Fransen of Holland and is named for his wife, Joyce. It is a mutation of H. 'Halcyon' and comes up almost plain blue, colors up with a yellow center resembling H. 'June', and finally, the center turns an almost white-yellow that holds til the end of the season. This was the last hosta to go down this year. Lavender flowers late in the summer.
