What a beautiful colour--they must really stand out in the garden! I don't think I've seen that type of hosta before, simply gorgeous!

Those are absolutely stunning. You wouldn't happen to have a name for them? I have never seen them before and would love to get some.

" White feather" is the name and they were sold by "Vessey Seeds" a few years ago.

Here's my little white one, just poking it's nose thru; thought it was called White Ice, though?

This is it's second year,,first year was spent in a pot, so, first year, in the ground. I did notice, that by the end of the summer,,it had started to turn green.

Sorry for the blurry pic, though!

Thanks for the names, my all time favorite plant is the hosta and always have an eye out for special ones. I'll be looking for this one for sure.
