Rainforest Sunrise Hosta

This standout little hosta makes a statement in your hosta garden.  A small plant – reaching only 10 inches high by 24 inches wide, the leaves are cupped and are of heavier substance.  A beautiful gold centered inside surrounded by a dark green margin it will produce near white flowers in the summer.  This plant is a sport of Maui Buttercups and is often paired with Wylde Green Cream.

Rainforest Sunrise was named Hosta of the Year in 2013 by the American Hosta Society.  To be named Hosta of the Year – a hosta has to have surpassed many different criteria – some of which are availability across the country and at an affordable price, hardy in most of the country and reliability all season long.

Pictured here is my Rainforest Sunrise, and I have it planted in a threesome, the other two being Maui Buttercups and Wylde Green Cream.   We have many new hostas coming this year and after such a long harsh winter – I am more than ready to get my hands dirty!Rainforest Sunrise
