Hosta of the day, ‘Pure Heart’

Name: ‘Pure Heart’
Description: a creamy yellow centre in the midst of the small round blue leaf. Has good vigour.
Size: very small
Origin: Sport of <i>H.</i> 'Blue Mouse Ears'
Flowers: medium lavender, bell-shaped, early summer
Added to garden: Spring 2014
Notes: The hosta is named for Mighty Mouse's girl friend, Polly Pureheart. Through its third year in my garden, this one was growing well and remained white in the centre. Most of the family with white in the centre have all turned solid blue for me. I'm hoping for the best with this one.
