    Design IdeasThis is a great mound of gorgeous variegated leaves that turn the darkest corner into a fountain of light. Use as scattered relief amidst darker Hosta or other evergreen groundcover. A moderate grower, this Hosta makes a good filler between flowering shrubs or among Fern. Excellent specimen in a pot all by itself and particularly beautiful in classical Roman urns on steps and terrace edges.
  • Care
    Care Information
    Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Avoid harsh sunlight. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
