I have had my plant for about three years now and it has grown into a nice clump. This is a fragrant hosta so it should receive a little more sun. Also, it is the middle of September as I write this and the plant still looks great! I want a garden worthly plant, meaning a plant that still looks good Sept. 1 and this is one.
