Hosta "Afterglow" review

The hosta Afterglow is a new introduction from Walters Gardens that makes a great specimen. This sport of H. Climax has large green heart shaped leaves with eye-catching yellow margins forming a beautiful upright mound. Leaves are thick and corrugated offering good resistance to slugs. Very impressive hosta that deserves a spot where it can be admired. Plants produce lavender blooms in midsummer.
