Hosta 'June' --From England comes this wildly popular, creamy-centered sport of the old standard Hosta 'Halcyon'. Each leaf emerges with blue edges and a brilliant creamy center that gradually changes to dark chartreuse. This is one of those shockingly beautiful hostas that stands out as soon as you spot it in the garden. We recommend some morning sun for best coloration.
Hosta Halcyon, Heuchera Amethyst Mist, Hakonechloa macra Aureola and Astrantia major Hadspen Blood keep the border going all summer in this Bainbridge Island garden. Carex Cappuccino in front; Phormium Platts Black and Lonicera nitida Baggesens Gold peeking out in back.
