Beautiful low chill hosta, does well in warm climates. Is not bothered by Slugs.

Out of the several varieties I have, this one is my least favorite. It's pretty when it first emerges in the spring but come summer it looks scraggly. The only reason I don't get rid of it is because it makes good slug bait to keep them off of the other Hosta.
