Welcome to the enchanting world of 'Francee' Hosta plant, a perennial favorite that graces gardens with its elegance from early spring through the growing season. Originating as a sport of H. 'Fortunei Albomarginata', this botanical beauty boasts heart-shaped, dark green leaves adorned with narrow, painterly strokes of white along their edges. The lush foliage, with its rippled texture, showcases a captivating array of leaf colors, maintaining its vibrant hues from the cool days of early spring well into the depths of summer.

As the growing season progresses, Hosta 'Francee' emerges as a true garden standout, thriving in the shady woodlands and lush garden beds alike.

In the dappled light of morning sun or the deep shade of a woodland canopy, Hosta 'Francee' flourishes, its heart-shaped dark green leaves casting a tranquil aura over any landscape. And when late summer arrives, it's time for nature's grand finale - the emergence of graceful, funnel-shaped pale lavender flowers atop scapes that reach up to 30 inches, a delightful attraction for hummingbirds and a perfect complement to floral arrangements.

So, whether you're seeking to add a touch of elegance to your shady woodland retreat or a splash of color to your garden borders, look no further than 'Francee' Hosta plant. With its early spring emergence, heart-shaped dark green leaves, and enduring beauty throughout the growing season, this botanical treasure is sure to captivate your senses and elevate your outdoor space to new heights.
