Whirlwind Hosta

Whirlwind features a wavy growth habit with beautiful dark-green margins and a creamy white flame-shaped center. Coupled with lavender blooms on 24” scapes in mid-summer, it will be the standout star of your Hosta collection! The creamy white centers do slowly turn lime-green to all green throughout the season.

Trim the stems after blooming to encourage growth. Discolored leaves should be trimmed back.
