Hosta "Heartache" review

'Heart Ache'. 20" tall. Part Sun to Light Shade. Yellow round/cordate leaves, slightly wavy, cupped, rugose. Lavender flowers. From Dr. Benedict, comes a neat new hybrid between Hosta 'Gold Regal' and Hosta ventricosa. The results are an arching 4' wide clump of wonderful thick golden rounded leaves, topped in mid summer with 40" sturdy spikes of lavender flowers. Gold, wavy, cupped. A lovely yellow with heart-shaped leaves. There will be some chartreuse tones appearing later in the season. Limited supply. This medium sized plant has heart-shaped leaves that are a wonderful mellow-yellow in color. Dark lavender flowers adds the final touch midseason.
