Rainy Side Notes
Hosta 'Revolution' was a sport of H. 'Loyalist' and was introduced in 2000 by Walter Gardens. What sets this Hosta apart is its striking undulating, creamy white, satiny leaves that are speckled with two shades of green.
I grew this in a window box for a couple of years and it paired well with a number of plants that I introduced to the container over time. I especially liked the striking contrast when paired with the Coleus—Solenostemon 'Religious Radish'.
