Info12" tall. Part Sun to Light Shade.
Blue green with a creamy yellow edge. Small heart shaped leaves.
From Dr. Jones (no relation to Indy) comes this delightful fast growing hybrid (H. nakaiana x H. 'Dorothy Benedict'). This perfectly proportioned clump is clothed with dark green heart shaped leaves bordered by a wide edge of gold.
The 20" wide clump is topped in early summer with spikes of light purple flowers.
A small heart-shaped blue-green leaf with a creamy-yellow margin, rapid grower that clumps up fast and has good substance; lavender flowers.
Bluish, somewhat long and narrow, heart-shaped leaves with a yellow margin.
Here is a pretty newer hosta, for a smaller area. I have been growing these for two years and they just keep getting better looking! Looks like it will reach about 24-30 inches wide. Nice blooms as well.
