Sun Shower

Hosta "Sun Shower" review

'Sun Shower' was a surprise. A "Longiana" in every way, it is a rich yellow in spring that catches every eye. It will fade a little toward chartreuse in mid-summer but remains a very attractive hosta. It is a one of a kind and the centerpiece of my "Longiana" hybridizing program. Light lavender flowers appear on yellow scapes in July. I probably should have patented this one.
