Fast grower for a hosta. Leaves are a pretty variegated shape. Seems to be hardier than most hostas. Love it

Wow. I was shocked at how fragrant the flowers are (and the flowers are substantial). Love it!

While a little on the plain side, this hosta is one of the most vigorous in my garden, it's one of my favorites.

Gorgeous, huge leaves. Doesn't require a lot of water compared to other hostas, either.
