Hosta of the Day - 'Moonlight Sonata'

Hosta 'Moonlight Sonata' might not be eye catching at first, but it's one that I have will really grown to love.  It is a lovely blue-green color.  The leaves start off almost a matte in spring and grow shinier throughout the summer.  The leaves are thick and are held up high, this is not a lay on the ground hosta.  Then in late summer the plant produces a large, fragrant white flower.  You could easily grow smaller hostas under the base of this one.  Green, yellow, and white variegated hostas would be good pairs for this hosta.
