Description from White Flower Farm
The rounded, slightly cupped leaves of this elegant sport of 'Sum and Substance' are quite large — 16in long and 12in wide — and each vibrant lime green leaf is smartly framed with a dark green margin. 'Final Summation' matures to a mound about 3-4ft wide, topped with lavender flowers in summer. PPAF
This genus of shade lovers has 70 species, all of them from China and Japan, and hybridizers have produced hundreds of exciting crosses. Hostas have many handsome leaf colorations and lavender or white Lily-like flowers on graceful stalks. Plants prefer a moist location, but we've had a mass planting thrive for more than 30 years under a row of Sugar Maples. (In the South and West, evenly moist soil is required.) Because Hostas are grown primarily for their foliage, the figure next to “ht” is the height of the leaves, not the flowers.
