Hosta 'Fortunei Stenantha Variegated'

"A horticultural name for a number of variegated clones of H. 'Fortunei Stenantha'. Some are stable and have been named, but unstable and viridescent forms are frequent. The form most often seen is a viridescent, yellow-margined one that loses much of its margin color by late spring, with only traces remaining. An outstanding, popular form that is stable has been named H. 'Viettes Yellow Edge'...Some of the variegated forms have lasting, yellowish white margins, and one of these forms has been named H. 'Fisher's Cream Edge'."
