This is a gorgeous hosta, it seems to like a bit of sun. It's been a slow starter for me but a keeper for sure.

Positive gregr18 On Aug 5, 2005, gregr18 from Bridgewater, MA (Zone 6b) wrote:

A sport of 'Great Expectations', introduced by Dutch Heuchera and Hosta specialist Jan ven den Top. A fairly large hosta that has round leaves with blue-green margins and a creamy yellow center. Similar to 'Thunderbolt', but distinctive. A beautiful new (as of 2005) hosta.
