I understand that Hosta's must have 30 or so days of 30 degree weather to go dormant and refresh. I don't always have that many so I'm thrilled when my hosta return.

I've just purchased this one and am hopeful. I'll let you know next year.

This hosta must be one of the best smaller-sized yellow cultivars. There is just the narrowest margin of green to set the yellow off.
