Purchased this in the spring. it is planted in sandy soil with compost added, watering can be a challenge. If it dries out it recovers quickly. Very happy with it, love the plant and love the name.

This delightfully fun, extremely ruffled hosta makes a distinctive specimen in shade gardens and containers. Its green leaves have cream margins which widen as the plants mature, and the leaves are of good substance, making them more slug resistant.
