New Hosta

The lable in the 1 gal. plant says : 'Albo-picta' Hosta fortunei

I think it was mislabled because it doesn't look like the pics I've seen in the online nurseries/galleries, ect. The Albo-picta description says heart shaped leaves with a white margin in spring turing completely green before it flowers. Mine has a narrow, long, wavy edge leaf and a good petiole. I'll ask you all for an ID before I head to the hosta forum. Thanks!

Sorry bout the blue'ish cast...it's that early morning light :D

so pretty Vera! I don't know the name though- there are so many of them :))

I really like Hosta- my favorite one (that I have) is "August Moon" because both my kids were born in August-
I am on the lookout for "June" "May" and "Red October" (I think it's called) those will be for my great nieces (ages 1 and 3) and my Mom- I pick a LOT of my plants because of the name *grin*

thanks for posting,
Linda
