These plants grow stronger each year.
A really unusual Hosta, the ‘White Feather’ leaves start off almost completely white. After a while these wonderful looking leaves will gradually develop green steaks and eventually the whole leaf turns a lovely green. They will then store plenty of energy ready for the following spring to revitalise the plant so that it will be able to produce those lovely new white leaves again.Show more
