Sum and Substance Hosta is a large shade-loving herbaceous perennial primarily grown for its foliage.  The huge heart-shaped basal leaves are deeply veined and open chartreuse-green and mature to golden.  Small bell-like pale-lavender flowers raise up in terminals from the green rootstalk above the mound in mid-summer attracting butterflies.  Best bloom in partial sun and moist well-drained soils.  Sum and Substance resist slug damage.

Within a few days of our order, we had beautiful, healthy plants delivered to our yard. Talk about a pleasant surprise to have everything we asked for unloaded and waiting for us when we were ready to plant without having to leave the house.

An amazing resource for plants, advice and landscape expertise. ServScape designed a rooftop garden for me which included the design, sourcing the planting materials, and installation, including a small irrigation system.

My order exceeded expectations last summer! Plus everything in pots and in the ground came back bigger and better early this spring.
