Hosta 'El Nino'

Hosta 'El Nino' PP14632

Plantain Lily

A lovely sport of 'Halcyon', but with showy white margins setting off the glaucous blue leaves. The flowers are lavender and appear in mid summer. We first saw this beauty at Meadowbrook Farms in Pennsylvania when it first came out, and bought every one for our own garden.

PRN Preferred:  The contrast between the ivory margins and blue centers is beautiful.
