Hosta Guardian Angel has ruffled, heart-shaped leaves that emerge with a distinctive ivory-white center and an irregular blue-green margin. With the progress of the seasons, the ivory-white center of the Guardian Angels turns a solid blue-green by summer. However, as old leaves mature and their centers grow darker, new leaves emerge with the ivory-white center, which makes for an attractive contrast. The ivory-white centers of Hosta Guardian Angel tend to hold longer in cooler climates.
