Hosta 'Sum and Substance' is considered to be one of the finest hostas ever introduced. The giant chartreuse clump is a knockout, topped by 30" tall scapes of hummingbird-acclaimed pale lavender flowers in midsummer. Each rounded leaf of Hosta 'Sum and Substance' can reach 2' across, while clumps average 6' wide for good gardeners and may reach more than 9'...great for neighborhood bragging rights! Hosta 'Sum and Substance' is one of the few tetraploid hostas.
