The American Hosta Growers have made their choice on the Hosta of the Year for 2013 and decided upon 'Rainforest Sunrise'. This gorgeous hosta is a sport of 'Maui Buttercups'. Leaves emerge a light green then quickly develop a dark green margin and the center brightens into a radiant gold. As leaves mature, they become cupped and heavily puckered giving this hosta a texture that is unique in the shade garden. Light lavender flowers emerge in mid summer on 24" scapes. Not a large hosta, this one will fit in nicely growing 8-10" in height with a 18-20" spread. Zones 3-9.
