(USPP 12,531 expired) Anyone who saw Hosta 'Liberty' at the 2000 American Hosta Society Convention left with their eyes popping and tongues hanging out. We are glad to provide what we think is one of the finest hostas ever introduced and the winner of the Hosta of the Year Award for 2012. This (4-2-2) tetraploid sport of Hosta 'Sagae' makes a stunning 2' wide, semi-upright clump. The extraordinarily thick, dark green leaves of Hosta 'Liberty' are edged with an astonishingly wide, golden yellow border, changing to cream in summer. In early summer, the slow-growing clumps of Hosta 'Liberty' are topped with spikes of hummingbird-friendly lavender flowers. We are pleased to offer large 2-year-old plants.
