    I got this one from Hallsons last year. I love it's shape and it's growing great in a spot that gets a few hours of afternoon sun.

    My Alex Summers is planted in almost full shade and maintains its variegation and upright habit all summer. A beautiful hosta. It deserves a spot in every hosta garden.
