Quick Overview:

?Great Expectations? is a hosta cultivar that features a 22-24? tall mound of large, variegated, oval, puckered, basal leaves with creamy white centers and wide, irregular, blue-green margins. Leaf centers emerge gold in spring before aging to creamy white. Foliage mound will typically spread to 30-33? wide. Racemes of bell-shaped, near-white flowers appear in summer on scapes rising above the foliage mound to 34? tall. This is a sport of the long popular H. sieboldiana var. elegans.
