Hosta 'June Fever'

Plantain Lily


Herbaceous Perennial

Unusually glossy, bright gold leaf centers are surrounded by dark blue-green edging that sometimes extends to stripes. Displays lavender flowers. Morning sun brings out the best color. Hostas grow best in moist, well-drained, highly organic soils. A good partner for ferns. Although the flowers are attractive, Hostas are usually grown for their ornamental foliage. (For visualization purposes, Hosta 'June' is pictured, which is very similar).
