'Wiggles & Squiggles' Hosta

A unique looking hosta that lives up to its fun name! Bright yellow leaves are very long and thin and notable for their incredibly wavy margins. It forms a low, wide habit that really highlights the "wiggly" edges. Leaves will be more chartreuse green in more shade: for the best yellow color, plant in a site with morning sun and afternoon shade. Lavender flowers.
