Invincible is not one of the flashiest plants, which are the ones I am often drawn to. It is, however, a very attractive plant. It forms a nice clump with attractive glossy green foliage. It is a good addition to a planting of the more flamboyant variegated Hostas. I have it growing in 2 different places and I am always pleased with it. It is nice also when it blooms.
