Hosta 'Vulcan'

Plant Type: Hostas

This vigorous sport of 'Captain Kirk' has crisp white centers that do not melt out. Dark green margins and yellow coloring jet toward the center of each broad, heart shaped leaf. Light lavender flowers on white scapes top the clump. Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today's gardens due to their versatility in the landscape. Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. Hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust.
