Hosta of the Day - hosta 'Babbling Brook'

I'll finished off the week with a beautiful hosta.  hosta 'Babbling Brook' caught my eye when I was at the closing sale of Foxfire Gardens in Marshfield.  Even though it was a monster I dug it out myself to bring it home.  What is there not to like about this hosta?  It has silver colored leaves that are slightly ruffled.  It definitely stands out among other hostas.  Much like yesterday's hosta 'Blue Haired Lady' it also has leaves that are chalky white underneath.  It's a fast growing hosta that has thicker leaves that would be more slug resistant.  I'm not sure why, but this beauty is not easily found.  So if you run across one in your travels - grab it and run (well pay for it first)!
