Sum and Substance Hosta
Huge Hosta That Likes Partial Sun
If you have a shady spot in your garden you are probably already acquainted with the beautiful Hosta. Known for their leaves in striking textures and patterns, Hostas are one of the best plants for shade for both the beginning and experienced gardener.
Some Hostas stand out for things other than their striking leaves, though. Sum and Substance Hosta, (Hosta 'Sum and Substance') is one of those plants. Not only does it have huge, rounded leaves with an amazing texture and heavy puckering, but it sports lavender flowers on 50" tall spikes. That's over 4 feet tall! Talk about lighting up the shade garden.
The plant itself reaches a height of 36" and a spread of 60". That's a big deal! This is a giant plant with colorful foliage that will need space to grow, so don't be stingy with the room.
Sum and Substance does great in deep shade, but a little morning sun will help its striking gold-chartreuse color reach its full depth. (Not too much sun or it will burn!) Besides that, all this easy care plant needs is some water and well-drained soil, then stand back and watch it do its thing.
