Sun Power Hosta

Description: The more sun the more colorful Hosta Sun Power becomes. In a shadier spot, this shade perennial becomes more chartreuse in color.Thick, slug-resistant wavy leaves are held somewhat upright thus welcoming shorter growing ground covers to nestle beneath. Try dark leaf Heucheras for a colorful effect. Hosta Sun Power can ultimately grow over 48 inches wide!
