Margins are rippled, which I love and the leaves are also somewhat thick. Flowers are nearly white (just a bit of lavender) and are funnel shaped. The mound can reach 26" x 52" and is gorgeous.

A wonderful hosta! The deeply impressed viens are another great feature and it has a semi-upright form. Forms lots of viable seed and is a good choice for breeding. This one was a winner of 3 differant awards in 1999.
