Lynne's notes:

I'm a self-confessed hosta-aholic. I can't get enough of them and like ones' children one shouldn't have a favourite. This variety though is one of mine. The kinky, twisted leaves with their irregular margins and streaks keep me captivated for ages and like a good picture there's something different to see everytime you look at it.
