'Ghost Spirit' is a small-medium hosta with broadly ovate leaves folded with blue-green centre streaked with white. Medium blue-green margins. Usually when it emerges, the leaves have white centres which become misty during the season but in 2015 mine emerged misty and stayed that way all season. Mine was new in 2008. If you'd like to see its progress during the years, go to https://violaann.smugmug.com/Garden/Hostas/Hostas-in-my-gard... and scroll down a bit. Please feel free to post your own pictures of this hosta.

That's very attractive as well. Looks good with Jack Frost(?).

It does, but Jack Frost almost disappeared last summer and I don't know why. It was still there at the end of the summer, but really minuscule. If it makes it through the winter, I'll dig it and pot it for awhile.
