Hosta Large Leaf "Sum and Substance"
Lori Jarmin - Blackfoot, ID - on January 16, 2018
I purchased this Hosta many years ago. Growing strong after all these years. It is a big beautiful plant. Very Hardy in Zone 3 - 4.
I plan on purchasing more when I move. Glad to know you carry this amazing plant.
Disappointing
Konrad Kestering - Asheville, NC - on October 14, 2017
I ordered two bags of Sum & Substance, with two hosts per bag. The plan was to plant these beautiful massive hostas in a long row along a garden path. Unfortunately, I received only one Sum & Substance. Of the remaining three, one is definitely "Mouse Ears" and the remaining two I am unable to identify. I wouldn't necessarily mind if these were not intended for a special effect. I want to say, though, that the plants were healthy and started growing after a few days.
