Description
This well loved Hosta produces large, heart shaped yellow foliage up to 50cm (20") long. The enormous leaves become gently puckered with age creating a lightly ribbed texture. Throughout July and August, Hosta 'Sum and Substance' bears tall stems of bells shaped, pale lilac flowers. Awarded an RHS AGM, this eye-catching hardy perennial is deservedly popular. Perfect for a damp shaded corner where it will make an impressive specimen plant. Height: 75cm (30"). Spread: 120cm (48").

Culinary note: The best part to use is the hoston, the rolled up leaf as it emerges in the spring. Cooking depends on the size of the hostons, small ones can be fried for a few minutes, going well in stir fries. Thicker ones are better boiled and used as a vegetable. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Hosta plants in sun or dappled shade, on rich, moist, well-drained soil. Before planting, work some fresh compost or general fertiliser into the top 20cm of the soil. Alternatively plant Hosta in patio containers in soil based compost such as John In???
More Info
In autumn, remove old foliage and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant. Lift and divide Hosta plants in autumn every third year to maintain their vigour.
