Sun Power

Hosta "Sun Power" review

22" tall. Part sun to light shade. Brilliant yellow. Large marginal undulations. Holds color well and takes sun. Light lavender flowers in July. 1995 Tony Welsbacher Award. Yellow ovate, cordage, wavy leaves, 10" x 7.5". 36" scapes with lavender flowers. A medium sized showy gold with twisted leaves and very sun tolerant. Hosta 'Sun Power' ranks at the top of the list of the best gold hostas. The pointed bright gold leaves, combined with the distinctive upright vase-like habit of the clump, make this a real winner. The 3' wide clump is topped with sturdy 3' spikes of light lavender flowers in early summer. A classic gold plant, holding color until frost, upright growth habit; lavender flowers. A graceful vase-shaped plant with long, sharply pointed bright yellow leaves, slightly twisted with undulating margins. Lavender flowers. Twisting yellow leaves emerge in early spring and stay a bright yellow. Rapidly grows into a beautiful clump.Medium to small plant, gold slightly twisted leaves. A rapid grower. Many light orchid flowers.
