USDA Zone 2-9

Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with hundreds of varieties now readily available. Plants form a sturdy mound of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This medium-sized selection has outstanding deeply-crinkled bright gold leaves. Near-white flowers appear in July. Suitable also for planting in mixed containers or tubs. Hosta go completely dormant in the fall, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid spring. Easily divided in either spring or fall, but plants may be left alone for years. Slugs may need to be controlled. Award winning. While deer enjoy eating Hosta, this variety may be slightly less palatable to deer than others.
