White Feather

Hosta "White Feather" review

Difficult. Needs enough sun to survive. This is an introduction from an other good friend Gerard Heemskerk in Holland. This is a sport of 'Undulata Mediovariegata' as we call it. When the leaves appear they are totally white. Later they get green streaks so they can grow on. All tough there are a few similar types around this one was introduced already 10 years ago. It is a good grower for a white one and takes a lot of sun here in Holland. It is not like Hosta 'White Trouble' an other 'Undulata' sport but will grow. The flowers are lavender. Snow white leaves in spring, strong grower, looks beautiful after it streaks up green with white stripes.
