Shadowland® 'Wheee!' Hosta | Proven Winners

Extremely ruffled, cream-colored margins extend from the tip of each green leaf all the way down the petiole to the crown.  This ruffled margin is evident even in the juvenile stage of the plant before vernalization.  The leaves of this medium-sized hosta are of excellent substance, making them slug resistant in the landscape. 

Light lavender flowers appear atop purple scapes in midsummer.
