Lace' forms a large size (20 inches high by 42 inches wide) mound of misted, green and white

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "The unusual color holds best in shade, but the
young leaves have the strongest variegation. Moderate growth rate...unusual and
worthwhile enough to give it the best care and attention...Variegation fades
during the summer into a faint misting. An unusual, near black scape."
