Sno Cone

Hosta "Sno Cone" review

Finally there is a dark green-margined, white-centered, 'Fire and Ice' look-a-like that grows really well. Admittedly from different ancestry, the very thick, probably tetraploid, leaves of 'Sno Cone' emerge bright white not yellow and never melt out, but will sometimes green up a little in late summer, helping it grow. Light lavender flowers appear on white scapes in July. Enjoys morning sun but will also grow well in shade. A hosta with staying power.
