Once we saw this Hans Hansen hybrid in person, we had to have it. This unique hosta makes a 20" tall x 43" wide clump of large rippled leaves. The leaves are blue-green in the center, highlighted by chartreuse veins, then surrounded by a wide edge of chartreuse. In late spring, the clumps are topped with 30" tall scapes of fragrant lavender flowers. This is perfect for the gardener looking for something completely different.
