About This Hosta
'Heat Wave' is a great sport of 'Bright Lights'. It is a small to medium sized hosta with wider margin and a stronger growth rate than its parent. In spring the leaves are chartreuse with wide, blue margin. In summer, the leaf center brightens to gold and the margin deepen to blue-green. When mature, the thick foliage exhibits some puckering.
