Important: This stock has been imported from Europe. It has not been thoroughly tested for viruses like Hosta Virus X. The plants from this crop are symptom-free at the time of shipping. Due to the demand for this plant and the lack of a clean domestic supply we offer these.
Hosta 'Whirlwind' is a sport of H. 'Fortunei Hyacinthina' . A shiny dark green margin surrounds the center which changes from pale green to creamy white with green striping during the growing season. Leaves are slightly twisted and curved. Good substance. This classic is a winner of the prestigious "Popularity Poll" from the American Hosta Society. This variety has been named one of the very favorites of all hostas by the majority of the AHS members in an annual poll. Basically, 'Whirlwind' is "loved by all". An excellent choice for your garden. Rarely produces fertile seeds.(Kulpa 1989)
