Hosta 'June' --From England comes this wildly popular, creamy-centered sport of the old standard Hosta 'Halcyon'. Each leaf emerges with blue edges and a brilliant creamy center that gradually changes to dark chartreuse. This is one of those shockingly beautiful hostas that stands out as soon as you spot it in the garden. We recommend some morning sun for best coloration.

Hosta 'June Fever' This sport of the popular Hosta 'June' was discovered in Holland by hosta grower, Jan Van den Top. Hosta 'June Fever' is a mutation that has much brighter gold leaf centers than Hosta 'June', surrounded by the same blue-green border. Hosta 'June Fever' also has a much glossier leaf surface, which is quite stunning in the garden. When the plants are young, the leaf edge appears narrow, but will widen considerably when the 15" tall x 2' wide clump matures.
