"White Feather" is almost a new hosta on the market. In spring, its leaves emerge pure white, begging the question of how the plant will survive without chlorophyll? By summer, the leaves may develop a blotchy green appearance. If the green fails to develop, the plant will not return the next year, or will be much weakened. This hosta does not tolerate sun and should be grown in partial shade where it can gather enough light to remain perennial.
