I'm really excited to have purchased such a fine hosta last year. I planted it in my Memory Garden last summer but when Victory became available I moved it to another spot. GA survived the move like a trooper. Mine is planted in a problem area which receives late afternoon sunlight. Here's an early spring photo.

Source of Info: Hallson Gardens
(Zilis 2003)
Clump Size: (L) 50" x 26"
Leaf Size: 13" x 10" -- Vein Pairs: 16 - 18
Description: Leaves are rounded and slightly cupped, deeply corrugated, blue-green with a yellow turning creamy yellow margin, making a nice sized mound when mature.
Blooms: Near white in early summer.
Comments: This reverse sport of Hosta 'Great Expectations' makes an attractive, large mound that has its best blue color when grown in some shade. It is similar to Hosta 'Northern Exposure' except that the margin is brighter yellow in the spring.
Light: Moderate to full shade for best color. -- Soil: Rich, moist, well-drained.
Related Plants: Elegans, Great Expectations, Northern Exposure
