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.
