Hosta "First Mate" review

The First Mate Hosta has memorable thin pointed leaves that bare a resembalence to a sword. Each leaf is a fantastic yellow that eventually changes to a creamy white with the margins showing a medium green that is always associated with the hight of summer. This is a sport of Kabitan that has wider margins and stands more upright than its predecessor.
