Description: This upright growing hosta has blue-green to green leaves with a variable width, chartreuse to creamy yellow margin.

Blooms: Many dense, light purple flowers on tall, erect scapes in summer.

Comments: A sport of H. 'Gold Regal', this hosta is surprisingly sun tolerant. In the shade the margin will be chartreuse but in almost full sun it will turn a bright yellow.

    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.
