This small (and very cute) Lachman introduction (H. 'Neat Splash' x H. 'Flamboyant' x H. 'Robert Frost'), is a slow grower, composed of creamy white leaves, each surrounded by a dramatic 1" wide dark green margin. The semi-upright habit of this 15" wide clump makes it truly distinctive. In late spring, this collector's item is topped with 10" spikes of medium lavender flowers. As with all white-centered hostas, morning sun will help the plant to grow more vigorously, and deep shade is a no-no.
