Probably the largest leafed Hosta we sell at Rabbit Ridge Nursery. Its huge, oval shaped leaves can easily be more than 14 inches long and almost a foot across. The leaf color is dependent on the amount of sunlight it receives and can vary from a very pale green to almost a golden green. Sum & Substance will grow best if it gets about four hours of sunshine a day. We grow it where it gets morning sun and afternoon shade because in our state, the summer afternoons can be quite intense. A good and dependable performer, the flowers are lavender in color, appearing on long and slender stalks. A Staff Favorite selection at Rabbit Ridge Nursery. Because of Sum and Substance's overly large leaves, it will loose moisture more rapidly that smaller leaved Hostas. To that end, mulch and keep moist if you do let it get in the sun.
