A gorgeous plant, minus its desiccation burning in the leaf margins. 'Olive Bailey Langdon' is a good non-burning substitute.



Blue-green with a wide irregular margin of chartreuse to yellow; varies from elongated to more rounded. Once a very popular hosta, No. 1 on polls for years, until the desiccation burn on the leaf margins became a more well-known problem. H. 'Olive Baily Langdon' is a good non-burning substitute for H. 'Frances Williams.' Frances Williams was very influential in creating an interest in hostas, corresponding with hybridizers, botanists, and collectors beginning in the 1930's. This eventually led to the creation of the American Hosta Society.
