Hosta 'Invincible'

The hosta 'invincible' is a very shiny leaved hosta with a slight pie crust edge. It does very well in this spot under one of my sugar maples, where it receives dappled sun all day long. As a bonus it has fragrant blooms in August. Mine has proved to be very 'invincible' to sun, slugs, and whatever else mother nature throws at it.

I once commented on Gardenweb that H. Invincible was a lackluster plant. But, it is now one of my favorites - especially when they bloom. I have been lax in putting out slug bait and the slugs have done a job on it this year.

Jeff when I first planted mine, I had the same thoughts on it. The slugs ate it up the first year, and I thought it should have been called "totally invincible". But after that first year it has been hard as nails, and it has really won me over.
