(Van Wade – 1999) [20″ x 40″]
Van Wade discovered this hosta as a sport on Hosta ‘Frances Williams’, with a dramatically wider gold margin than her parent, and forms a stunning 2′ tall x 40″ wide clump of thick, corrugated blue leaves surrounded by a wide gold border. This hosta is topped in late spring with short spikes of pure white flowers…a hummingbird treat! Unlike its famous parent, ‘Linda Sue’ doesn’t show much of the same leaf scorching tendencies as ‘Frances Williams’.
Named for Van and Shirley Wade’s daughter and introduced by Wade & Gatton Nurseries in 2006.
