We have had a real drout this year and all my other varieties of hostas look real bad, and this one has taken the heat like no other hosta I have seen. No burnt leaves, and it blooms in Aug with fragrance that rivals any rose! One of my fav plants.

Grows fairly quickly and always looks good. Snails like it a bit, at least here in the south, but that's the only real concern.

Hosta of the Year - named by the American Hosta Growers' Association - 1998.
