Hosta "Whirlwind" review

The Hosta Whirlwind has one of the most interesting growth habits we have ever seen. Whirlwind is a medium size compact growing hosta with white centers and dark green margins. The leaf center can change throughout the season depending on the amount of sunlight. Plants have a growth habit like no other hosta we have seen. The leaves point upright and are slightly curved and twisted making it a unique addition to any garden. A vigorous rapid grower.
