Lachman introduced Francis Williams hybrid. Wide leaves with an exceptionally wide cream margin, often convex in shape, developing heavy rugose texture with age. A very striking plant, but in my experience needs a little care as it can be slow to start with, but stunning eventually and one for the connoiseur. Can reach 90cm wide and 40cm tall.
Hosta ‘Carnival’. Wide leaves with a very wide cream margin.
All Hostas need some shade and few will thrive in open strong sunlight. A general rule is that the lighter foliage, the brighter the sunlight that will be tolerated. Variegated varieties tend to require more sun to keep their white, light green or gold stripes. The darker, bluer varieties need more shade.
Once established, Hostas are pretty tough and will spread horizontally to make excellent ground cover.
Grown for their decorative foliage. Form large clumps that are excellent for ground cover. Attracts humming birds in suitable geographical locations.
