Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas. Plants form sturdy mounds of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This large selection forms a mound of light green leaves that change to gold as it matures and a very wide, dark green margin. Fragrant, pale lavender flowers appear in summer. Can tolerate some sun and growth is fast to medium. Clumps may be easily divided in spring or fall. Sport of H. ‘Guacamole'.
