Hosta "Spartacus" review

Hosta 'Spartacus' features elongated heart-shaped leaves with a series of light ripples along the leaf edges. This sport of 'Sea Gulf Stream' maintains the leaf shape and plant habit of the parent except it has a dark green leaf center and a narrow yellow edge, accentuating the rippled leaf margin. Pale lavender flowers open on arching scapes in late June. Named after the gladiator slave who led an uprising to over throw his captors in ancient Rome and became an ancient folk hero.
