Information from hosta catalog:
Stark white leaves with a moderately wide, deep green margin. Deep raspberry-red petioles into the base of the leaf. Decent leaf substance and enough green for slow, but steady growth. Morning sun and good moisture needed for best growth. Will form a mound 9" tall and 20" across topped with deep red scapes of dark lavender flowers in August.
