A lovely green hosta with pie-crust edges. White underside to the leaf. Blooms VERY late in the season.

Pictures from June 21, bud on Aug. 31, bloom from Sept. 21. Zone 5a. Please feel free to post YOUR pictures of the designated hosta.

I keep Marilyn Monroe in a pot. I bought it last year and I'm still not sure where to place it. It got burned in afternoon sun, so I moved it to a shadier area of the garden. I love the flowers!
