HOSTA: It is difficult to find a garden that is without this versitile East Asian native. Lush foliage in diverse colors, heights and textures, coupled with its ability to excel in deep shade have captured gardeners’ hearts everywhere.
Hosta 'Key West' boasts large gold leaves that are heart-shaped and slightly wavy. Forms an impressive mound of bright gold foliage. Can handle some sun where it becomes a brighter gold color. Beautiful and graceful hosta that makes a wonderful specimen plant! The waving form and color remind the breeder of Key West sunsets. When I am asked to recommend a large gold hosta, this is the first one I think of! Pale lavender flowers in early summer. Takes 1-2 years to become established. Mature size: up to 3 feet tall x 6 feet wide.
