Hosta of the Day - 'Jaz'

Hosta 'Jaz' has very glossy, greenish yellow leaves.  The leaves are very, very thick which makes this hosta very slug resistant.  Slugs prefer leaves that are thin and easy to eat, I guess they don't like to work for their dinner.  These leaves feel almost like they are made out of rubber.  It is a medium sized hosta with off white flowers in late fall.  It will definitely add a different texture to your hosta bed.  Pair this one with dark green or blue waxy hostas that will let it's glossy leaves shine.
