Hosta 'Soul Shine'
[M-L] We are big fans of Don Dean's hybridizing work, and this is one of his latest introductions that we think will become a quick favorite! 'Soul Shine' is a multi-generational cross involving classics like 'Sun Power' and 'Golden Sculpture', as well as Don's own 'Fluted Fountain'. The result is 14" long, pointed leaves with gently undulating edges and numerous dimples texturing the surface of the leaves. Long petioles form a strongly upright clump, and the leaves arch downward in a neat, layered arrangement. Hosta 'Soul Shine' gets brighter yellow as the season wears on, and grows into a cascading mound about 29" tall and 56" across. Fertile, soft lavender flowers bloom in mid summer.
