Comments: Hybridizer Ron Livingston has created some wonderful plants and he tends to only introduce some of his best plants. Hosta 'Rare Breed' has some fantastic coloring, but as a white centered plant it is also very slow growing, so we give these extra time in the ground here before selling them. Still, don't expect much for the first few years.
Light: Light sun to light shade. -- Soil: Humus-rich, moist soil.
Zones: 2 - 8
