This grower is sure of this plant identification.
Graceful but robust plant. Large mid green glossy leaves carried on erect purple tinted petioles. Leaves also exhibit good veining and an attractive wave. To top it all off it has near white large blooms that are sometimes over 1m high and pleasantly scented. I like this plant as a stand alone specimen or a large container specimen. A Bill Brinka introduction.
Hosta ‘Old Faithful’. Hosta with mid green glossy leaves on erect purplish petioles. Scented white flowers up to 1m.
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.
