Hosta 'Francee'

Plantain Lily

'Francee' is another popular variety of hosta that Green Gate Farms offers and this one's variegation holds up very well in sun. Francee's medium to dark green heart-shaped leaves have narrow, clean white margins. This variety forms a wide low mound of slightly glossy foliage which is ideal for use as a groundcover. This lovely hosta has funnel-shaped lavender flowers that emerge in mid to late summer.
