HOSTA OF THE YEAR 2010
First Frost’ (Scolnik, Solberg 2002) - (Sport of ‘Halcyon’) - Medium, (16" X 34") "Great hosta sports start with great hosta parents." ‘First Frost’ is a frosty white-edged sport of ‘Halcyon’. Blue leaves emerge with a wide margin the wonderful color of the center of ‘June’, another 'Halcyon' sport and 2001 Hosta of the Year, and then turn pure white if grown in half a day of bright light. Lavender flowers bloom in July. It has excellent color and substance, and will look unblemished in the garden until the "first frost".
