Hosta 'Francee'

Introduced by Minnie Klopping in the 1970's and registered by The American Hosta Society in 1986, this large (21 inches high) cultivar has dark green leaves with white margins. It is a large sized plant with lavender, funnel shaped flowers on 42 inch scapes in late July into August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "During the 1980s, 'Francee' replaced 'Undulata Albomarginata' as the most commonly used white-margined host for landscaping purposes. It offers consistent, attractive variegation and a good growth rate."

This cultivar has been awarded the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit in the UK.
