Hosta 'Fantastic'

This seedling of H. 'Sieboldiana' was registered by Marge Soules of Indiana in 1988. The plant grows into a large size hosta about 23 inches tall by around 50 inches wide. Its blue-green foliage is broadly ovate shaped and has thick substance. The near white flowers bloom from mid-June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...rates highly for thick substance, good blue-green color and attractive corrugation, but its unruliness at maturity is number one."
