Light up the shade with this exciting new Hosta! Its leaves are long and smooth -- like the vegetable for which it is named! -- and they sport a jagged green margin darting into a white center. But most interestingly, the plant has an upright habit when young, gradually becoming arching and elegant as it matures. Never a dull moment with Cool as a Cucumber! The long, tapered, glossy leaves are so showy on this shade-lover. They unfurl in late spring, creating a nicely symmetrically upfacing plant that eventually reaches 28 inches high and about 4 feet wide. A great choice for groundcoverage as well as mass planting, it also sports uniquely interesting flower scapes. The blooms themselves arent so remarkable -- the usual small, airy, pale lavender flowers -- but the stems are a pure, ghostly white that stands out nicely in the shade! Best in partial to full shade, this is a showpiece of a Hosta, one to be treasured in border, foundation, woodland planting, or just about anywhere else. (Its a bit wide for containers.) You will find yourself admiring it week after week as it modifies its form and acquires early to midsummer bloomscapes. Zones 3-9. read more
