Madame Butterfly

Hosta "Madame Butterfly" review

'Madame Butterfly' has ovate, slightly wavy leaves bearing dark green margins and attractive light gold centers that change to cream as the season progresses. This rare and lovely hybrid forms a medium-sized mound of high contrast foliage for maximum garden impact. Hideko Gowan’s colorful Hosta 'Madame Butterfly' will flit and float its way into your heart. Attractive two-toned, green-margined leaves have light gold centers that fade to cream. A sport of Hosta 'Dorset Clown', it is rare, lovely, and fertile. Forming a medium-size mound of showy foliage, this gossamer gem is sure to make your imagination soar.
