This is one of my favorite small streaked plants.
Notice the nice bluish silver backing.

Great looking plant, and from what we got in it looks like it might be a relatively stable streaker, like Korean Snow.

We have them in production for the 2009 catalog, so I'll have lot more history of how it performs then, plus you can keep us posted on your progress too :)

This particular plant started out with three leaves and I was wondering how it would survive. As you can see it has done very nicely and waiting for a more mature one will be worth it in the future.
That is one of the things that makes dealing with Hallsons nice is they can run the test to see if how well it performs before most of use buy a plant that is not exactly cheap.

wzbt is absolutly right.

I got mine too as tre nice leaves this spring. 7 leaves now and who knows, last leave is still unfurling. Mine is in a pot, lots of light, but hardly no sun, so I didn't expect it to be fast.

Lovely streaks and looks like it is absolutly healthy

We hybridiizers want to know if it is fertile, anyone know? I think I saw it at the convention and passed on it. The hosta I saw that looked like it was at the Naylor booth.

I picked it up at the Convention, I'll let you all know. I thought it kind of cute too. Hope it makes misted babies! What did you come home with Dave? Sorry I missed meeting you :(

I have some of these coming this week. I hope they have nice streaking as well. This is one of the ones that I am really excited to see out of the whole order.
