Hosta ‘Great Expectations’

Hosta 'Great Expectations'

A slow grower with thick, puckered, broadly ovate leaves with excellent slug resistance. Wide, irregular, blue-green margins surround an ever-changing center; starts out chartreuse in the spring, turns to yellow, then to creamy yellow, and finally to white (colors vary with light levels). Fern green streaks are painted between the margin and center of each leaf; every leaf is unique. Dense masses of white flowers are displayed just above the foliage on 24″ scapes in early to midsummer. A sport of H. sieboldiana ‘Elegans’.

Foliage grows up to 20″ high and 40″ wide with flower scapes up to 2′ tall.
