Positive lmelling On May 23, 2005, lmelling from Ithaca, NY (Zone 5b) wrote:

Parent unknown, registered in 1994 by Mary Chastain. Very beautiful, medium sized variegated hosta (16"H x 40"W). The leaves are ovate and have flat bases with creamy margins that contrast with the medium green center and producing gray-green streaks into it. Good substance. Near white tubular flowers in mid-summer on 22-27", streaked blue-green scapes. Sets viable seeds.
