I bought this because it's the name of my elder daughter. Interestingly, it's a sport from 'Anne' (though I don't have the 'e' on my name). 'Anne' is a sport from 'Francee'.

This is a medium-sized hosta and the seeds it produced are fertile. I've not had any really interesting seedlings, but my daughter has one that really is a lovely, though solid green, plant. The white margins are on cupped leaves, but they are also slightly prone to drawstring effect if the spring is very wet; so I'm careful to withhold fertilizer until it has fully leafed out. It holds up well through the season. Please feel free to post your own pics of this hosta.

Very pretty Ann. Love hostas with the wide white edge; they really pop.
