The centers of Whirlwind's leaves are light, near white. Margin of leaf is dark green. Leafs are contorted........This picture does not look like any of those on the data base......leaf color and form not correct....look at Viola Ann's pictures.

Leslie, it's a great specimen! If you are in agreement, I can move it the generic hosta entry. Maybe someday someone will recognize it and it can be moved to the correct entry.

Sure Sue! I took that pic at a friend's place. Will let him know it is probably wrong.

Here we are guessing again. Probably not Sagae. It may well be Ventricosa aureomarginata. Look at the pictures on Google which is not always correct but provides a frame of reference.
