Hosta Winter Snow is a sport of the classic Hosta Sum and Substance. I haven't seen all of the introduced sports, but Winter Snow is the best. Color is a nice Granny Smith Apple green with a creamy white margin. Leaves are shiny with prominent veins, broad and lightly ruffled. Plant is semi-upright and growth rate is good. Highly recommended.
