Cool as a Cucumber

Hosta "Cool as a Cucumber" review

'Cool as a Cucumber' is a sport from the beautiful old Lachman plant 'Cascades'. Somewhat similar in appearance, the difference becomes clear when you plant it in your garden. With wider green edges, this form grows quite a bit better than its parent and is a much more successful garden plant. Found in the TC batches of 'Cascades' this sport has reached remarkable size in Walters test gardens, demanding introduction with a new name.
