Hosta 'Hi Ho Silver'
 

A tissue culture sport of H. 'Ginko Craig', this cultivar was registered by Walters Gardens, Inc. of Michigan in 1997. This medium size (12 inches high by 16 inches wide) plant has wider leaf margins that its parent. Purple flowers bloom in August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "With its much wider white margins, 'Hi Ho Silver' offers an improvement on a hosta classic."

The Book of Little Hostas (2010) says: "Too much sun will likely damage the thin leaves of this otherwise very attractive cultivar. It looks good against dark mulch in a raised bed or woodland garden."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Useful as a contrast in front of large blue-leaved hostas...Maintains its smaller leaves, eventually having wider margins than its parent."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Ginko Craig', H. 'Ginsu Knife' and H. 'Sarah Kennedy'.
