(Mature Size: 32"T x 60"W)
Hosta 'Alex Summers' is a sport of Hosta 'Gold Regal' and regal it is with its large upright form. Best color is exhibited with morning sun exposure.
The middle of the leaf is blue/green with wide chartreuse margins. With half a day of sun exposure the margin will be bright gold.
We have had good results with this hosta in full sun here in southern NH. It's vase-shaped habit makes it ideal for under-planting with smaller hostas or other ground covers.
This hosta has a tendency to revert to all gold. Remove the all gold divisions to help keep the variegation.
Medium lavender flowers appear mid July.
One of manager P.J.'s favorites!
