|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 2 ft. tall, 3 ft. wide.|
|Design Ideas||Bright Hosta like this one bring light into deeply shaded gardens. Try this taller variety behind shorter plants and amidst ones with emerald green foliage for contrast. Plant as clumps among acid-loving flowering shrubs. Excellent in shaded rock gardens, on slopes and in low, moist pockets. Later in the season, enjoy its bright flower spikes that add interest and variety to the foliage.|
