This hosta was discovered at Naylor Creek as a sport of ‘Lakeside Cupcake’. While they may look somewhat similar as mature plants, ‘Half and Half’ offers the advantage of instant color in spring.
The center color of ‘Lakeside Cupcake’ transitions from yellow to cream, but ‘Half and Half’ emerges right from the start with a pure white center and dark green margins. A third light green color rests between the center and margin. This beautiful variegation remains throughout the whole season, making it a lovely specimen from start to finish.
In mid to late summer, well-proportioned, white scapes carry near-white flowers above the mound of foliage.
