Lemon Lime

Hosta "Lemon Lime" review

The Lemon Lime Hosta has several hybrids and sports that come from it. Its leaves are quite spectacular in that they are entirely shaped like a lance or thin sword. The name comes from the color of the foliage. The leaves start out as a wonderful chartreuse and as the season moves along, it becomes a lemon-lime color. Often, the color tends to favor the lime.
