It's not easy being green! Despite this drawback, this hosta gets a lot of rave reviews in our garden. The thick, matte-finish, grey-green foliage combines with purple petioles and white leaf-backs to make a dazzling, unmistakable clump. This selection of H. longipes var. latifolia makes a 2' wide clump that is topped with pinkish-lavender flowers in very early fall.
