Ocean Isle

Hosta "Ocean Isle" review

Winner First Look 2004 Frances Williams Award (Best Sport Attendees). This impressive hosta has long, thin pointed, wavy blue-green leaves with a wide, bright gold margin. The leaf center becomes a shiny, rich green color by mid-summer. It has very good substance, a high vein count, and light lavender flowers in June and July. Winner of Best Sport at 2004 First Look. It becomes better with age. (Named for our favorite North Carolina beach.) Green-centered, gold-edged sport of 'El Dorado' found by Dave Chopko of Boonton, New Jersey; winner of the "Frances Williams Award" as top sport of the 2004 "First Look" seedling and sport competition; non-burning, slug resistant, gold-edged, Hosta sieboliana-type
