Frances Williams Hosta is a shade-loving herbaceous perennial primarily grown for their foliage.  The very large blue-green basal leaves have irregular yellow-green margins and deep veins.  The small bell-like purple tinted white 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.
