Summer Breeze

Hosta "Summer Breeze" review

2000 intro, a medium sized plant with heart shaped leaves. A sport of Hosta 'Summer Music' with wide gold margines and dark green centers. This sensational new introduction from Mark Zilis, a sport of the popular Hosta 'Summer Music', is undoubtedly destined for greatness! The central pattern of the rounded leaves is dark green, bordered by a dazzling 1.5" wide bright golden border. Each 50" wide clump makes a dramatic beacon in the woodland garden. In early summer, the clumps are topped with 30" scapes of light lavender flowers.
