I have had two of this variety since summer 2002. One of my 'Twilight' plants has given me seeds. It was my first hosta to put out seeds, which makes it pretty special.

This is such a sweet, pretty hosta. It has dark green leaves edged with a very wide light yellow margin. Reported to possibly be a tetraploid of a 'Fortunei Aureomarginata' mutation. Blooms are light lavender in mid-summer atop a 3' wide clump.
