Hosta 'Jessica Alba'
[M] With Hollywood good looks, this blonde is ready to star in any hosta movie you cast her in! This sport of 'Marilyn Monroe' emerges bright, sunny-yellow in the spring and gradually turns chartreuse by mid summer. It never goes as green as its parent, though. The broad, smooth leaves have fantastically ruffled edges and powdery-white undersides that you will see flashed here and there among the ruffles. Hosta 'Jessica Alba' is a good grower that will form a beautiful mound about 14" tall and 30" across that blooms in the fall with fertile, lavender flowers.
