Details

(Hosta) Hosta 'Sum and Substance' is an award winning hosta with 16-inch wide, egg shaped leaves that are ribbed and glossy to provide good slug resistance. 'Sum and Substance' prefers sunlight for 25% to 75% of the day, which in turn will vary the color of the leaves from light green to chartreuse to gold. In mid to late summer, songbirds will be attracted to pale lavender, bell-shaped flowers that open on tall 48 inch scapes.

Hosta are hands down my favorite garden plant. Easy and so many to choose. Sum and Substance is one of the best. Plant in the right location and it will brighten your shade garden all season long. (Posted on 1/12/2012)
