'Korean Snow' is an unusual hosta which has misting rather than streaking. It's a seedling of H. yingeri discovered by Bob Solberg at Niche Gardens in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I've had mine since 2004 and love it. If you've ever wondered what "spider-like" flowers are, this one is a great example, but those flowers come very late in the summer. This is another hosta that was attacked by slugs while I was away last July but it's not usually bothered too much. Please feel free to share your photos of this hosta.

This is one that I've covered and uncovered a few times this spring! This one is an early riser that's worth protecting from a freeze.

That misting is very interesting looking. Does it maintain that for the whole season? Does it require more or less light to keep it that way?

It lasts all season. It does get a bit darker as the season progresses, but I never have to do anything to it.
