Yes, it looks like Liberty or is it smaller?

I think this is the Savory's introduction - right?? Does the margin turn white later? I have one of their catalogs from several years ago & I'm pretty sure it's one of the color pics. But the margin is very white.

Yours is another beauty!! :P

Ren, you're correct. As to the margins, don't know, the plant looked nothing like this last year, the margins were narrow and the plant small. I was pleasantly shocked to see it look like this, this year.
Debbie, don't know what the unlitmate size will be, its a young plant.

That 2005 catalog just happens to be on my nightstand for a little light reading. :wink: I read a page or 2 of hosta listings & descriptions & I can sleep soundly. :)

Here's the description for Ivory Coast:
Large - large light green leaves w/a wide slightly rippled, creamy white margin. Upright w/a moderate growth rate.
Very striking as a specimen plant.


Registration lists it as a Sagae sport from Dennis Savory, reg. in 1999. Reg. size: 20" H x 24" W; leaves 8" W x 9.5" L; 12 vein pairs; light green w/a 1.5" wide creamy white margin, slightly rippled margin.

I also say it reminds me of Liberty only a bit more upright ... love that color!

Well, I'm thinking of that other Sagae sport, Magic Fire instead of LIberty. Liberty doesn't have those wavy leave edges
