Hosta "Rainbow's End" review

PP17251 (28/11/2006). This new, small hosta is one of the more dramatic and unique hostas that we have ever grown. This Hans Hansen sport of Hosta 'Obsession' boasts very thick, canoe-shaped leaves with a bright golden center, surrounded by a wide, dark black border. Our 1' wide clumps are topped in midsummer with short red-purple flower spikes of attractive dark lavender flowers.
