Tobacco Road

Hosta "Tobacco Road" review

A bright hosta with muted gold center, softly blending into lime green edges. The gold center intensifies in the summer. The waxy surface is smooth to the look and touch. The leaf shape is long yet wide, reminding the hybridizer of a Tobacco leaf. Plantsman Bob Solberg of North Carolina suggested the name Tobacco Road. The breeder said 'perfect'. Sturdy fast grower. This hosta can handle more sun than most.
