Hosta 'Whirlwind'

Hosta 'Whirlwind'
plantain lily

Common name plantain lily
Family hostaceae
Life cycle perennial
Light part-full shade

Among the hosta hybrids growing in our garden, there are a few that I like well enough to give them their own page. 'Whirlwind' is one of them. I like the bold variegation, which shows up just fine on our plant that grows in almost complete shade. As shown in the photos on this page, the variegation colors change through the season and according to sunlight exposure: the lighter color varies from lime green to a creamy white, whilethe darker color varies from avocado to a dark forest green.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
