Plantain Lily 'Frances Williams'

Hosta are popular perennials for shady areas. Grown for their architectual qualities and sumptuous foliage topped with lily-like blooms. The flowers appear in mid-summer. Hosta go completely dormant in the autumn, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid-spring. Easily divided in either spring or autumn. 'Frances Williams' is known for its large, heart-shaped, dark bluish green leaves edged in chartreuse to yellow margins which become wider as the plant matures.
