Hosta x 'Francee'
|Description||Lush foliage clumps with dramatic, heart-shaped, dark green leaves edged in white - truly a standout in the landscape. The mounding foliage with beautiful variegation is ideal for those sometimes difficult to fill shady woodland areas and borders. A wonderful hosta for containers. An herbaceous perennial.|

|Watering||Keep soil consistently moist but not soggy.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; forms dense clump 2 ft. tall, 4 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container|
|Design Ideas||This 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.|
|Companion Plants||Coral Bells (Heuchera); Lungwort (Pulmonaria); Columbine (Aquilegia); Fern (Athyrium); Bleeding Heart (Dicentra)|
|Care||Provide slightly acidic, evenly moist, well-drained, humusy soil. Avoid harsh sun exposures. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge in early spring.|
