    These hosta leaves change color depending on how much sun they get. Grown in mostly shade, they have a bright, almost chartreuse color. They are not as vibrant in areas that get more sun, so save this for deeper shade and its color will really pop!
  • Posted by Ispahan (Chicago - Zone 6a) on Nov 7, 2011 10:00 AM concerning plant:
    A reliable steady performer with showy, fragrant flowers. This is one of those special garden perennials that, while not flashy or exciting, always seems to be "just right."

    A rapid grower and easy for any gardener to maintain. Large, funnel-shaped fragrant flowers!
