  1. How can I purchase this hosta?

    • Since this hosta is new you won’t find it just any where but I’m sure your local garden centers should have it this summer! Remember….hostas aren’t the first plants to show their beauty in the spring so you may have to wait till late May before it’s on the shelves! Good luck!
