Hosta 'Rainforest Sunrise'
*** Prior experience with starter hostas is helpful with this size ***
HOSTA OF THE YEAR 2013... Hosta 'Rainforest Sunrise' is an exciting sport of 'Maui Buttercups'. The lightly cupped, corrugated, thick and glossy leaves emerge light green but waste no time in developing their radiant gold centers and dark green margins. The flower scapes are chartreuse and display green seed pods. A nice, colorful selection that is slug resistant. A strong grower that looks great all summer long and well into autumn. (Anderson 2003)
DESIGNER HOSTA: This variety joins a select few other hostas in the exclusive "Designer" category. This plant has distinctive garden presence and exemplary landscape performance. The foliage is of good substance and demonstrates superior resistance to garden pests. This plant grows well in all parts of the country. A premium plant that looks great all season long!
