'White Dove' is a mini, a hybrid of 'Beatrice' x 'Beatrice'. It has arching, long, narrow, green-centered leaves with a slightly rippled, pure white margin. Mine was new spring 2008. It doesn't always bloom for me but when it does, it has a lovely white flower late in the season. The slugs do like this one. Please feel free to share your pictures if you have this hosta.

That's 'Rainbow's End'. And the littler one is 'Surprised By Joy'. I've also got 'Hidden Cove' just the other side of RE. It's always interesting to see how little is left of the minis at the end of the summer while RE is nearly untouched by slugs.
