Hosta ‘June’

Hosta ‘June’ is a gold-centered tissue-cultured sport of Halcyon. This is another hosta that normally shows a color change, with the gold color getting lighter as summer progresses.

Hosta ‘Gold Standard’

A mature Hosta ‘Gold Standard’ is an impressive sight! It has no trouble passing the “ten foot rule” (meaning that it is easily recognizable from a distance) because the bright color of its leaves will make it stand out in any garden.

Hosta ‘Guacamole’

Hosta ‘Guacamole’ was named the 2002 Hosta of the Year, and it definitely is near the top of the list of hostas with the most fragrant flowers. Guacamole produces large, trumpet-shaped, pale lavender flowers and leaves with chartreuse centers and darker green margins.

Hosta ‘Undulata Univittata’

Hosta ‘Undulata Univittata’ is a very common hosta, and it is always one of the first to emerge in spring. It has wavy leaves with curved tips and a very thin substance that makes them a real attraction for slugs.

Hosta ‘Patriot’

I think Hosta ‘Patriot’ is an especially beautiful hosta because of the contrast between the very dark green leaves and their pure white margins.

Hosta ‘Cherry Berry’

Hosta ‘Cherry Berry’ is unusual because it has red scapes and bright red seed pods. I have this hosta planted directly in one of the gardens and it has grown enthusiastically, even though some people advise starting this hosta in a container sunk into the soil.

Hosta ‘Revolution’

Hosta ‘Revolution’ has a very distinctive color pattern. In the spring the centers of the leaves are a light, creamy yellow, speckled and streaked with two different shades of green. The margins are irregular and a very dark green.
