This grower is sure of this plant identification.
Originally registered in 1978, but rarely seen today. Can be challenging to get going, best started in a container and potted on gradually, but rewards with a spectacular leaf of gram with a light green/glaucous green border, and a rugose texture. Needs dappled shade to do well, worth trying against small ferns and small blue Hostas.
Hosta ‘Reversed’. Hosta with leaves with white centre and glaucous green to each side. Needs dappled shade and can be a slow grower.
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.
