‘Francee’ is a beautiful foliage plant, a medium sized hosta with deep green leaves and crisp white margins. The pale lavender flowers appear in summer. Hostas are prized for their lush attractive foliage; strong waxy leaves provide great ground cover and contrast well with other plants. An ideal plant to grow in drifts along a shaded border. Hostas make excellent subjects for container growing, forming striking clumps. They prefer shade and rich, moist but well drained soil. Propagate by division in early spring. Surround plants with a good layer of coarse grit each spring to protect them from slugs. Height to 50 cm.
