Culinary information: The best part to use is the hoston, the rolled up leaf as it emerges in the spring. Cooking depends on the size of the hostons, small ones can be fried for a few minutes, going well in stir fries. Thicker ones are better boiled and used as a vegetable.

Cultural problems 2012-01-13
Hosta "White Feather" Many reports say it starts to wither the leaves within the first two months, where this may be due to the lack of green areas in younger plants - giving a shortage of chlorphyl (plus perhaps sunlight) and sometimes it displays grey streaks typical of crown rot. The plant should be left for a seaon, with the damaged leaves removed, even though it appears dead, as sometimes, it will show new shoots the following year!
Hosta "white feather" variety 2012-01-13
Although a lovely variety, it has a reputation for being harder to grow than some of the regular green leaf varieties. Make sure it's in a well drained location, I work in some pea gravel to the bottom of the planting hole with the compost layer; this helps drainage and good root formation.
Long-term care 2012-01-13
Hosta "White Feather" Please don't let it dry out, but don't overwater it either, as this may lead to crown rot. Once it's about 2 or 3 years old, it is more hardy and it will benefit from working in some manure or damp compost to the soil near the plant and it may be suitable for lifting and dividing at that age.
