Hosta of the Day - hosta 'Choo Choo Train'

By now you have probably figured out that I have a fondness for gigantic hostas, but I also go weak in the knees when it comes to a pie crust edge on a hosta.  So there was no way I could resist adding hosta 'Choo Choo Train' to my garden, even if it meant having to get rid of some other hostas to make room for it.  'Choo Choo Train' is a gold hosta that is deeply veined and has an magnificent pie crust edge.  It grows to be over 6 feet wide and about 2 feet tall.  It make a great center piece or back of the shade garden hosta.  Because of it's gold color, it can also take a little more sun than green or blue hostas.  Mine is only a couple years old, but you can see it's already going to be a beauty!
