Named for the Roman revolutionary rebel with a cause, this revolutionary sport of Hosta 'Sea Gulf Stream' forms a 17" tall x 3' wide clump of 1' long x 8" wide, medium green leaves, surrounded by a heavily rippled yellow margin. I don't think I truly had an appreciation for this magnificent clump until I spent some time in Han Hansen's Minnesota garden in 2009...Hosta 'Spartacus' is simply stunning! The clumps are topped with 3' tall scapes of lavender flowers in late spring...a hummingbird favorite.
