Hosta Rainforest Sunrise
A Small Hosta with HUGE Appeal
Each spring, Rainforest Sunrise Hosta seems to say “I may be small, but watch what I can do”! The show begins in spring when the delightfully-pointed, heart-shaped leaves emerge as a solid light green. Before long, that vibrant shade of green transitions to a majestic yellow-gold, accented with a dark green border. Add to this the highly-textured appearance of the thick, glossy foliage, and you can see why this Hosta is lauded for its decorative appeal.
Petite, lavender-tinted blooms appear on 24-inch stems that rise up above cupped foliage in mid-summer, just another added little treat for your summer landscape.
Your Rainforest Sunrise Hosta will grow up to 10 inches tall with a 16-inch spread. It has an upright, mounded nature and moderate-to-fast growth rate. Rainforest Sunrise is adaptable to a variety of soils and tends to not be as bothered by slugs as other Hosta varieties often are.
Rainforest Sunrise Hosta would do best in a spot with dappled shade, perhaps under other plantings or as a decorative border along your garage or outbuilding.
Rainforest Sunrise Hosta is an award-winning sport of ‘Maui Buttercups’. This lively little Hosta has the feel of a designer variety that I’m sure you’ll find is perfect for your home this summer.
