What can we say that hasn't been said about the most beautiful hosta available today? This sport of Hosta sieboldiana 'Elegans' from England has a fabulous cream center (emerging gold in early spring) surrounded by a dramatic, wide blue-green edge...sure to brighten any garden. The medium-sized clump, to 30" wide, is topped with near-white flowers in early summer...once you see it you gotta have it! Hosta 'Great Expectations' needs morning sun or very open shade to grow properly.
