Frances Williams Hosta
Giant, blue-green leaves have very wide, chartreuse to yellow margins which become wider as the plant matures. Leaves are corrugated and slug resistant. Bold, rugged foliage seems nearly indestructible. White flowers are displayed just above magnificent foliage on 30" scapes in midsummer. Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today's gardens due to their versatility in the landscape. Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. Hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust, etc.
