Here is one of the truly great heat-tolerant hostas that slipped through the proverbial cracks. Hosta 'Iron Gate Delight', introduced in 1981 by North Carolina's own Van Sellers, has 5" long oval leaves with a very dramatic border that emerges gold, then changes over to cream. Hosta 'Iron Gate Delight' is a vigorous grower that matures into a spectacular 3' wide clump, further enhanced with extremely fragrant lavender flowers on 2' scapes in midsummer... basically an improved Hosta 'So Sweet'!
