Field Guide to Hostas by Mark Zilis (2014),
"White-centered cultivars are always
popular...Unfortunately, many exhibit a slow growth
rate, reaching maturity only after several years of
careful tending. 'Ann Kulpa' is not one of these
cultivars. It has proven to be an outstanding grower
collections and nursery containers...The leaf center
begins the season yellow, turning white by mid-June."
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "Vigorous, a moderate increaser. Needs frequent
division to retain the centrally striped effect."
