This hosta requires patience. Expect greatness Review by jo
Although this plant is listed as a moderate growth rate I am finding that at the end of year 2 it is really just getting started. I expect it to be a great blue in time. The first larger leaves are showing promise. (Posted on September 13, 2015)
