Positive ChrisZ5 On May 11, 2011, ChrisZ5 from Tracy, IA (Zone 5a) wrote:

Have had this hosta about 4-5 years and finally divided it this year. It tolerates a fair amount of sun. It also tolerates almost totally clay soil with little drainage. I amended the soil this year so hopefully it can take better conditions. It is a medium hazy kind of green where I have it planted.
