(D & M Beilstein 2009) [Large 20″ x 36″]
I am a real lover of Doug's hostas, and this one is probably my favorite. Named for their dearly-loved, and much-missed dog, Bailey, this very distinctive hosta has clean pure white margins on Irish green leaves. The leaves are very smooth, shiny and almost round with very good substance. Nice lavender flowers in mid-summer. I always like to touch it as I walk by it – I guess kind of like “petting” it!
