First Frost Hosta is a shade-loving herbaceous perennial primarily grown for their foliage.  The large basal leaves are deeply veined blue-green with a wide creamy-yellow edging that matures to white.  The bell-like pale purple flowers raise up in terminals from the rootstalk above the mound in mid-summer attracting butterflies.  Best bloom in partial sun and moist well-drained soils.  First Frost is resistant to slug damage.
