InfoThis new Gil Jones introduction is a sport of the dramatic H. 'High Noon'. Instead of having all gold leaves, however, H. 'Climax' has heavily corrugated green leaves, each with a 1" wide golden border. Each large 4'+ clump has the same vase-shaped habit of H. 'High Noon'. In late spring, this specimen hosta is topped with 32" scapes of light lavender flowers....a superb specimen plant!
Great substance on this vigorous grower that is topped with lavender flowers.
