Love this hosta! Easy to see why it is always high on the popularity polls for hosta. It grows well, grows pretty fast, and no matter how many you have they will all look different according to where you plant it. Like most people I know, I grow two of this wonderful hosta!

Every 'June' will look different depending on how much sun it gets. I have three and they are all different. I really like that.
