'Cool as a Cucumber' is a large sized, incredibly showy, tricolour hosta. Its white variegated foliage is notably upright in youth but quickly develops into a gracefull arching mound. The long, pointed leaves have mid green margins which jet into light green towards the clear white centre. The flowers are white or light lilac. Photo courtesy of Walters Gardens, Inc.
