Hosta 'Sum & Substance' (Hosta x 'Sum and Substance)
If you want a BIG hosta for your shade garden, Sum & Substance is a good choice. Each big, bold chartreuse gold colored leaf can get as much as 2 feet across on a plant that will eventually reach 6 feet wide, depending on conditions. If you want a specimen plant or conversation piece, Sum & Substance fits the bill. This hosta actually prefers a little more sun than others, place it where it will receive 3-6 hours of sun per day, avoiding hot, intense afternoon sun. Remember that deer love hostas, so if you have a herd of deer that visits on a regular basis, it is best not to tempt them with hostas. They make beautiful container plants for a shady patio, porch, etc. (picture is of a one year old plant, they get MUCH bigger with maturity so don't crowd this one)
Prepare the planting area well, its size requires plenty of organic matter to keep the over-sized leaves fed. Give it sun, but provide afternoon shade, especially in the south.
