Hosta of the Day - 'June'

If you ask any hosta lover to name their top 5 hostas, hosta 'June' is sure to be somewhere in their top 5.  What's not to love?  It is a strong growing hosta that looks beautiful no matter where you put it.  The unique thing about 'June' is that you can have more then one plant, and depending on the light they will look like two different plants.  The more light it receives, the more green in color it will appear.  The less light, the more blue in color it will appear.  Either way it's beautiful!  The leaves are blue with chartreuse centers that turn more towards gold as the growing season progresses.  Place this hosta somewhere near the front of the border, as it will draw lots of attention and it's medium in size.  It will look great paired with gold and/or light green hostas.
