'Ginko Craig' is an old variety and it was one of my first hostas, acquired in the '90s. It divides easily and makes a good border, but I think there are more exciting hostas around now and a couple of years ago I dug out a large border of it to make space for other varieties. It's a small hosta with lance shaped leaves of green, edged and streaked with white. Please feel free to share your pictures of this hosta.

Ann I had a very nice clump of Ginko Craig back in IL. I gave a lot of it away as it just "didnt do it for me" .... but it did produce a nice seedling/baby. Lemme see if I can locate a photo.

Ann -- here is that baby .... this photo was taken in 2012
if i remember when i go home to IL next week -- I'll get another photo.
Just may dig it up and bring it to WI.

The Ginko Craig is next to it, but out of the photo. Queen Jo is above it.
I just love the wavey leaves.
