Hosta "Sagae" review

Sagae is one of the most stunning hostas available; loved for it’s huge triangle shaped leaves. The hosta Sagae was named Hosta of the Year in 2000 and for very good reason. The large heart-shaped wavy edged leaves really stand out with bright green centers and creamy white margins. Plants have a moderate growth rate reaching up to 31″ when mature and produce pale lavender flowers in misdummer.
