Hosta 'August Moon'

Plantain Lily

The large, heart-shaped leaves of August Moon are bright gold to chartreuse depending on the amount of sun exposure it receives. This variety of Hosta tolerates some morning sun which will intensify the gold color of the leaves which are corrugated, wavy, and of good substance. Open bell-shaped white to pale lavender flowers appear in mid to late summer on sturdy stems above the foliage.

Additional:

The genus name Hosta is after the Austrian physician & botanist Nicholas Host (1761-1834). Seiboldiana family.
