This spectacular hosta boasts boat-shaped leaves of blue-green, highlighted by a dramatic golden central pattern, that changes in late spring to a scrumptious creamy white. As with all white centered hostas, they must receive filtered sun, or a couple of hours of morning sun for best growth. The 18" wide clumps are topped with violet flowers on 15" scapes in early summer. This is not a hosta for beginners!
