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.

CARE
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.
