This unique introduction adds more mystique to the world of variegation...a stable streaked and speckled hosta. H. 'Korean Snow' is a H. yingeri seedling discovered by Bob Solberg at Niche Gardens in NC. The butterscotch and grey speckling (brightest in early spring) covers the light green, glossy leaves. In late summer, the 2' wide clumps are topped with typical, dark purple, H. yingeri-like flowers. For breeding purposes, the speckling is a seed-transmitted trait.
