What is it about hostas that make a once hum-drum border garden feel like a tropical escape? August Moon Hosta shows off everything we love about the species. Able to tolerate full-sun this color-changing hosta's chartreuse leaves will intensify to gold. August Moon's wavy, corrugated leaves are thick and heavy, providing good slug resistance.
In midsummer pale purple flowers rise above these shining leaves, which would truly look at home in a rainforest. Add a ton of color to your shade-to-sun border, or in containers, with very little work. Try pairing this happy variety with Blue Angel Hosta for a duet of large-leafed varieties. Hosta 'August Moon'
