Hosta Plantain Lily 'Rainforest Sunrise'
Hosta Plantain Lily 'Rainforest Sunrise'

Emerges light green but quickly develops dramatic dark green border around radiant gold centers. Light lavender flowers complete the package on this 2013 Hosta of the Year.

Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with hundreds of varieties now readily available. Plants form a sturdy mound of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This small selection features crinkly golden-yellow leaves with streaky dark-green margins. Pale-lavender flowers appear in June. Well suited to edging a shady border and also for planting in mixed containers or tubs. Hosta go completely dormant in the fall, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid spring. Easily divided in either spring or fall, but plants may be left alone for years. Good slug resistance. A sport of 'Maui Buttercups' registered by Winterberry Farms/J. Anderson in 2003.

Blooms mid to late summer.

Winter hardy, Container plant, deer resistant
