Hosta 'August Moon'
*** Prior experience with hostas is helpful with this size ***
Hosta 'August Moon'. A classic gold that actually dates back to 1969, but was finally registered in 1996. This award winner is slug resistant and takes more sun than most. 'August Moon' features attractive corrugated foliage of good substance. The leaves are rounded, 9.5" long and 8" wide, classified as 'broadly oblong-ovate' shaped. It is quite fertile, producing many seed pods just above the foliage. It is the parent for numerous sports and offspring. A classic that is the foundation for every collection and a great plant for beginners. (Langfelder/Summer/Ruh 1996)
This hosta is a winner of the prestigious "Popularity Poll" from the American Hosta Society. This variety has been named one of the very favorites of all hostas by the majority of the AHS members in an annual poll. Basically, this plant is "loved by all". An excellent choice for your garden.
