Hosta 'Royal Charmer'
[M] For a hosta that has been around for 30 years and can be found in nearly every hosta collection, Hosta 'Royal Standard' has produced surprisingly few sports. Leave it Danny to find the coolest one, yet! Glossy, lightly dimpled, green leaves are edged by a wavy, clean white margin. The cool thing about 'Royal Charmer' is the large splashes of grey-green that streak into the leaf center. Overlapping colors are common in variegated hostas, but I've never seen it this bold and dramatic! Like its parent, Hosta 'Royal Charmer' is a fast grower and will quickly form a sun tolerant mound about 20" high and at least 36" across. Stout stems of fragrant, near-white flowers bloom in late summer.
