Description: Leaves are rounded, lightly cupped, white with a wide green margin, forming a small clump.

Comments: Hosta 'Half and Half' is a sport of Hosta 'Lakeside Cupcake' that has a white center all summer long. They will look similar later in the summer however Hosta 'Lakeside Cupcake' emerges with a creamy yellow center that lightens. Neither is a fast grower though they both form a nice attractive small mound.

    I can't say enough about this hosta !!!

    It really is one of the best white centered I have had the privilege to grow.

    The colors are so vivid and don't fade. It does tend to have a slightly glaucous cover on the dark green parts, giving it a blue edge for a few months, but it slowly melts off and exposes a rich dark green. Stark contrast against the bleach white middle and apple green inbetweens.

    Seriously, give this one a try. I can't recommend it enough.
