Hosta x Cool as a Cucumber (Cool as a Cucumber Hosta) This gorgeous large hosta forms an incredibly showy, cascading clump of green and white variegated foliage. Its foliage is notably upright in youth, but quickly develops into a gracefully arching mound. The long, tapered, pointed leaves have bright green margins which jet towards the clear white center. The leaves are also of greater substance than its parent, H. Cascades.
Part of the Northern Sunset brand, it prefers rich, well-drained to moist soil in part shade to full shade.
