Eagle's Nest

Hosta "Eagle's Nest" review

This new introduction, is a most unusual sport of Sum and Substance. This plant does not get as large as it's parent, but has very wide highly defined yellow margins. The leaf centers are vivid green and are cupped and puckered. Blooms are on much shorter scapes than Sum and Substance. This plant is thought to be a possible tet. Here is "our" entry into the ever expanding group of yellow edged Sum and Substance sports. This one is not just another pretty face. It has character! wide gold variegation and beautifully cupped centers, set this plant apart. This plant is not a real fast grower, and these are second year TC plants.
