Frosted Jade

Hosta "Frosted Jade" review

Thin white edge on dark green leaves. Medium lavender flowers appear in June. Attractive lighter green streaks radiate from margin. Gray-green with a white edge, cordate, flat leaves 12" x 9". 42" scape with white flowers. Award winner, magnificent when established. This Hosta montana ssp. macrophylla hybrid makes a spectacular large clump to 5' wide of giant dark green leaves with a nice pure white margin. Flowers are pale lavender on 30" scapes in late spring. This is one of the best and least known hostas ever introduced...a spectacular clump in the woodland garden! Dark frosty-green leaves with a neat, white margin and white flowers. Large pointed leaves, dark, jade-green with a wide cream-white margin. The leaves have a waxy, frosted coating similar to that on many blue hostas but not found on any other variegated green cultivars we know of. White flowers. Very large, frosted jade-green leaf with a neat, white, precise margin. A very choice plant! Large plant. Its dark jade green leaves have a distinct white margin.
