This unique Hosta 'Francee' mutation is almost certainly a reverse tetraploid of the parent...similar to Hosta 'Loyalist'. The black-green slightly rippled foliage is background to the brilliant creamy white central pattern on each leaf. Each 2' wide clump is indeed a glowing beacon in the garden. In early summer, the clumps are topped with 20" scapes of light lavender flowers.
