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-size selection has chartreuse-yellow leaves with a wide green margin. Fragrant white flowers appear in late summer. 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. While deer enjoy eating Hosta, this variety may be slightly less palatable to deer than others. Selected as the 2002 Hosta of the Year by the American Hosta Growers Association.
