About This Hosta

A well grown clump of 'Sum and Substance' never fails to impress. This is an award winning hosta that is always in the top ten on AHS popularity polls. The huge satin gold leaves just glow in the shade. In our expereince it grows best in light shade but some gardeners say that it will do well in a lot of sun as long as it is keep evenly moist. The lavender flowers appear in August.
