Common Name: Hosta
'Echo the Sun' is a bright yellow hosta with nicely rippled margins; comparable to a gold version of the blue 'Diamond Lake'. The low, mounded habit is more prostrate than 'Diamond Lake', but shares a similar wedge-shaped leaf of thick substance. Compared to 'Coast to Coast', 'Echo the Sun' has a smaller habit and a pronounced rippled leaf margin. Lavender flowers appear in midsummer.
Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today's gardens due to their versatility in the landscape. Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. Hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust, etc.
This premium hosta variety is part of a group of the finest hostas available today. To be considered a premium hosta, plants must perform superbly in many zones. They must also exhibit exemplary garden presence and performance, have a long season of appeal in the landscape, have leaves of good substance, and demonstrate a greater resistance to common garden pests.
