Hosta 'Atlantis' is a superb tetraploid mutation of Hosta 'Abba Dabba Do' from Michigan's Hans Hansen. This amazing hosta makes a huge 5' wide clump of slightly wavy, pointed, green leaves. Each leaf is bordered with a very wide, light yellow margin. In mid-summer, the vigorous clump is topped with 30" spikes of hummingbird attracting light lavender flowers. Stunning!
