Great Expectations Hosta



'Great Expectations' lives up to its name. A bit of a slow grower, but well worth the wait, its bluish-green leaves have a center that changes color from chartreuse to white depending on sun exposure. Each leaf is unique and guaranteed to brighten up the shade garden. Dense masses of white flowers are displayed just above the foliage on 24" scapes in early to midsummer. Mixes extremely well with astilbe, fern, and other shade loving plants.
