HOSTA OF THE YEAR 2007
Hosta 'Paradigm' features shiny, thick, gold leaves with jetting blue-green margins. Plants emerge solid green in spring, the variegation intensifies as the season progresses. A little direct morning sunlight will give you an amazing gold colored center. Multi award winner. Excellent slug resistant foliage. (Walden-West/Purtyman 1999)
