Hosta 'Rainforest Sunrise'
[S] 2013 Hosta of the Year! 'Rainforest Sunrise' has many of the characteristics we are familiar with in larger hostas, but in a much smaller plant. Deeply cupped and rounded gold leaves are nicely puckered and edged with a striking dark green margin. Excellent substance means the plant holds up well all summer and is of little interest to slugs. Hosta 'Rainforest Sunrise' is a sport of ‘Maui Buttercups’ that is somewhat slow growing, but definitely worth the wait. Forms a compact mound about 10" tall and 18" wide that is topped with pale lavender, bell-shaped flowers in mid summer.
