'Spilt Milk' is a medium-large hosta which is unlike anything else in my garden. It's nearly slug resistant and the blue-green leaves look as though they've had milk splashed all over them. 2015 was the 10th year for mine. Some have a great deal more milk "spilt" on the leaves than mine does, but I still have enough to make it a very interesting plant. It holds up very well all season. Please feel free to post your photos of this hosta.

I agree with this being an interesting hosta. I had to hunt around before I found one with sufficient milk spilt on it. Have enjoyed it ever since. Mine is about 7 years old now.

I lost my mature one a few years ago but I ordered another to replace it! It is a nice one that every collection should include.
