|Lore||Hostas appeared little in gardens until about the 1960s when tissue culture allowed the expansion of cultivars to the astonishing numbers there are today.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Moderate growing; forms foliage clump 6 in. tall, 24 in. wide.|
|Design Ideas||This bright little fellow looks best planted in the foreground of deeply shaded gardens. It will contrast with Hosta and other plants with emerald green or bronze foliage. Plant as a groundcover to block weeds among the acid-loving flowering shrubs. Excellent in shaded rock gardens, on slopes, embankments and low, moist pockets. Later in the season, enjoy the bright flower spikes that add interest and variety to the foliage.|
