Hosta 'Frances William' (Plantain Lily)
Among the most popular hostas ever introduced, 'Frances Willians' is a large variegated hosta with thick, puckered, strongly veined, broadly heart-shaped, blue-green leaves, 12 in. long, widely and irregularly margined greenish-yellow, gradually maturing to creamy-beige.
Funnel-shaped pale lilac blooms appear in early to midsummer, rising on scapes 30 in. long, but the primary contribution of this hosta is its lovely foliage. Slow to establish, this clump-forming perennial is impressive in large containers or in the shady border.
