Island Charm

Hosta "Island Charm" review

9" tall. Part Sun to Light Shade. Yellow to white centered leaves with green margin. Rarely melts out. Petioles and scapes are pink. Dark lavender flowers. Different and showy. This new introduction from NY's George Rasmussen is one the best small white centered hostas to come along in years. The thick white leaves are surrounded by a wide medium green border. In early summer, the fast multiplying 1' wide clumps are topped with attractive pink red scapes and dark lavender flowers. Dwarf clump of yellow to white centered leaves with green margin. Pink petioles, scapes and pinkish-lavender flowers -- sometimes even pink seed pods. Leaf centers are yellow, turning creamy white, edged in green. Leaf petioles and flower scapes are pink to reddish.  Lavender flowers. Leaves are medium green in color with a beautiful feathered center of white. Red petioles topped with pretty lavender flowers. A very vigorous grower.
