Chain Lightning Hosta Description

Nice ground cover with a neat, domed habit
Striking in colour, compact in size, Chain Lightning just may be one of the best shade plants for garden or pot. Corrugated leaves with a lovely heart shape emerge in early spring as snowy white with wide, deep green margins. The contrast of the two colours is quite eye catching, even from afar. Midsummer brings soft lavender blooms that attract attention, as well as butterflies, to the area. Chain Lightning has a neat, domed habit that lends itself nicely to group plantings. It also makes a fine ground cover, growing to a moderate 16" tall and 24" wide.
