A wonderful variegated Hosta with large fragrant flowers. One of my all-time favorites!

New to me this year, I love the foliage and it has grown considerably in the first year. I anxiously await what I understand is a large fragrant bloom. It grows well in Canada (Ottawa).

Edited to say that now, in 2007, the bloom is so prolific that it smells good just to walk by.

The flower on this hosta has a shimmering white with a silver edge. It is shaped similar to a lily but is much smaller. The plant is called "Diana Remembered" because it was one of the plants that Princess Diana enjoyed.
