This has become one of my alltime favorite hostas. The varigation is kept through the entire summer. Prolific plant which perform well the first year, and keep getting better.

Although this is the first year for this hosta in my garden, it has proved to be a good one. Nice leaf texture and showy all by itself.
The leaves look like someone took a paint brush to the margins. This would be a good one to plant under shrubs or lots of green as a border plant.
