Wide Brim has a bright grass green center with a wide irregular cream to yellow margin which holds throughout the season. Round, cordate leaves are 8″ long x 6” wide with 11 veins.
A rapid grower, it is low and wide, with great color and texture. Wide Brim is bound to be a standout in any planting. Because it doesn’t get very tall, it goes well in front of the larger blue hostas.
Forms a wide 3 foot clump but only 1.5 feet tall. The scape is foliated and very thick and has a double twist (twisting one revolution every 3-5 inches) sporting two stalks of flowers higher up on the scape. Pale lavender flowers bloom in July.
