Hosta ‘Rainforest Sunrise’
Common Name: Hosta, rainforest sunrise hosta, plantain lily
A sport of 'Maui Buttercups,’ ‘Rainforest Sunrise’ has leaves that are solid light green when they emerge, but then quickly develop dramatic dark green borders and radiant gold centers. They are thick and glossy, holding up well all season, and are also slug resistant. Light lavender flowers are produced on 24" scapes 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.
