A spectacular plant of the Fortunei group. Amazing spring coloration. A viridescent hosta that will be all green by early july here in the upper midwest. Also a highly fertile plant.

Absolutely the best looking hosta I have in the ground. Grows VERY quickly and has a wonderful mounding shape to it. Also, it's very easy to separate.
