Currently we are not set up with pictures for each hosta. We hope to add that soon. By going to HostaLibrary.org you can find pictures for nearly all of these. They often show both young and mature plants in various sunlight conditions.

(10"H x 15"H) Lachman 91.

A leaf is 6" long x 2 1/2" wide; the central white area is surrounded with dark green which bleeds back into the center, establishing a lighter green "bridge" between the two areas. The markings are highly irregular, but with roughly equal amounts of white and green. The leaves have some undulations and the petioles are rose colored. The structure of the plant effectively displays the colors of cream-white, dark and light greens, and rose. The flowers are violet; bloom is in July and August.
