This is the only Hosta that sat in full sun all summer and did not fry or receive even half the water that the others got. Very tough hosta.

Discovered at Virginia's Mobjack Nursery and first auctioned for $700 at the 92 hosta convention.

This is a beautiful variegated hosta that has done exceptionally well here. The gold leaf margins are especially large. It is hardy and fast-growing. The variegated heart-shaped leaves show very well in shade, but it also tolerates some sun. Lavender flowers on 30" scapes in mid-summer.
