Tom Schmid registered this
cultivar of unidentified parentage in 1999. This medium size (12
inches high by 25 inches wide) plant
was originated by
Eleanor Lachman of Massachusetts. Its leaves are cupped,
heavily corrugated and have thick substance. The near white
flowers bloom in July.
The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by
Grenfell (2009) states: "The subtle tonal variegation quickly responds to
different light and heat levels so the plant may need to be tried in several
places before the optimum conditions are found. Slow to increase but well worth
the wait as it is one of the most attractive of the Lachman
introductions...exceptionally thick, cardboard-like leaf substance...very short
scapes, rising only just above the leaf mound."
