Common Name: Hosta
- A large sized hosta with a moderate growth rate
- Described by many as the most spectacular hosta they have ever seen!
- Thick, heavily corrugated and puckered leaves are green with a brilliant gold center
- In spring, the margin may have a waxy coating making it appear more blue, and the center may be more chartreuse
- Thick leaves exhibit slug resistance
- Forms a wide, tall clump, making it the perfect focal point for a shade garden
- Near-white flowers sit just above the foliage in late spring or early summer
- Named by hybridizer Olga Petryszyn for her brother on his birthday
Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today's gardens due to their versatility in the landscape. Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. Hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust, etc.
