Hosta ‘Lemon Lime’
This great small hosta glows in the garden. In spring the new growth emerges bright chartreuse, with the color being more intense with some sun. Later in summer the foliage color deepens to lime and slender flower stems rise above the plant and are topped with clusters of lavender-purple trumpet-shaped flowers. This is a very vigorous selection and performs well in the garden or grown as a container plant.

Culture NotesHostas prefer a location in light to open shade. Sites with hot sun should be avoided. Plant it in a location with rich, moist to well-drained soils. Most hostas will tolerate sandy sites as well as clay. During dry weather provide regular watering, especially in sandy soils. Flowers can be removed once the blooms have faded and the foliage can be cut to the ground in fall.
