Gardeners' Notes:

Tends to emerge earlier than other hostas in the spring. In the trade, sometimes confused with 'Undulata'., Some pale-greenish streaking between center and margins of leaves.

Was given one small set of leaves of this hosta 2 years ago, and now it is a nice healthy clump. The appearance is interesting with the "curly" leaves. It spreads easily and doesn't seem to have any problems as long as it doesn't get too hot.

this was my first hosta. i started with small leaves that had survived the grass invading it over the years. i took the pieces i could find and planted them in a garden bed and they have thrived.
this hosta looks great in my woodland garden. it stands out nicely and also grows rapidly, thus filling in areas quickly and beautifully.
voles got ahold of some of these hostas this past winter. what was left were small pieces of the tops of the rizomes, no roots. i planted them in pots and they are growing nicely. these little hostas are true survivors in my garden beds.
