Outstanding, thick, rounded, puckered, pale blue-green leaves emerging with streaky, bright yellow centres in spring, the centres slowly fading to an attractive creamy-yellow in the summer. White flowers, are held well above the foliage in July. A slug resistant variety which is best planted in half to full shade but is tolerant of some sun.

Hostas make ideal ground cover plants for sun or partial shade and once established can be left undisturbed for years. The variegated varieties keep their colouring better if planted in semi-shade. They thrive in well-drained but moisture retentive soils and this should be enriched with well rotted compost or leaf-mould. The foliage is most attractive and in the summer the plants are crowned with racemes of nodding trumpet-like flowers which are attractive to bees and other pollinating insects. They are also good planted in pots and containers and can brighten up a shady area with their bright yellow variegated foliage. The foliage will die down in the winter then re-shoot in the spring. Height 55-60cm (2ft), spread 150cm (5ft).
