Hosta of the Day - 'Foxfire Off Limits'

I am ending this week's hosta series with a beauty!  Hosta 'Foxfire Off Limits' is a sport of hosta 'Sun Power'.   It's a bright gold hosta with a slightly wavy light green margin.  People are instantly attracted to it's unique look.  It's also highly sun tolerant.  Unfortunately, this hosta is not one that is easily found any more.  I may have mentioned this before, but Foxfire Gardens was a wonderful hosta garden located in Marshfield, WI.  In the fall of 2009 they closed their gardens, and hosta fanatics from all over still mourn the loss.  'Foxfire Off Limits' is one of Foxfire Garden's own creations.
