Hosta "Rhino Hide" review

The Rhino Hide Hosta is named for its extraordinarily thick leaves. Much like its namesake, the skin of this plant is incredibly tough and difficult to penetrate. In addition to being quite thick, the leaves of this plant are also corrugated and cupped. It is often referred to as the ultimate slug resistant hosta. The foliage of this plant is very dark green with a narrow yellow center.
