Hosta Francis Williams

Hosta Francis Williams

A long time favorite giant Hosta with massive blue-green leaves with very wide, chartreuse to yellow margins. Its bold, rugged, puckered foliage is slug resistant. White flowers on tall 30″ scapes appear in midsummer. Hostas are excellent perennials for shade that require minimal care. They are lovely massed in woodland settings or used as specimens. With their weed smothering foliage, they make idea ground covers. Although they are tough plants that can withstand periods of drought, for best results keep well watered during dry spells.
