This is probably the most mysterious hosta to ever exist... rumored to be a product of experimental radiation! Its price reflects the ineffectiveness of tissue culture in reproducing this plant. H. 'Embroidery' (a H. hypoleuca derivative) makes a small clump to 20" wide. Each shiny green leaf emerges in spring with a creamy white center and a fabulous "stitched" edge. The center coloration and some of the exaggerated stitching fades in warm weather. In early summer, the clump is topped with arching stalks of very light lavender flowers... only for the serious collector!
