|Description||A bold plant for the shade garden. Dramatic, two-toned leaves have wide silver blue margins with a narrow gold to creamy-white thunderbolt down the center. Near-white, fragrant flowers on tall scapes appear in midsummer. Vigorous clumps with heavily corrugated foliage resist slug damage. An herbaceous perennial.|

|Watering||Water regularly - weekly, or more often in extreme heat or containers.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; forms foliage clump 2 ft. tall and wide; 2½ ft. in bloom.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container|
|Design Ideas||This very large, colorful Hosta fills a lot of space in the shade garden. Bold, corrugated leaves offer a unique texture against smoother varieties for an interesting and diverse foliage garden. The predominately silver-blue leaves are a cooler color than the traditional greens and considering the center splash ages to creamy white, this plant looks best combined with creamy rather than other golden variegated plants.|
|Companion Plants||Astilbe (Astilbe); Coral Bells (Heuchera); Columbine (Aquilegia); Lungwort (Pulmonaria); Mukdenia (Mukdenia)|
|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.|
