InfoDeeply rippled edges.
'Grand Canyon' has a new and exciting sculptured form. The glossy rounded leaves are held upright, and whirled into a trumpet at the base, displaying their white velvet backs. Deeply rippled with heavy veining.
A child of 'Sum and Substance'. The heavy texture is striking with the vase shape of the plant. Chartreuse to golden, the leaves are shiny, deeply ribbed, ruffled at the margins and have white backs. Looking into the deep throats reminds one of a canyon. With age the 3' tall flower scapes will branch. Pure white flowers. Can take more sun than most hosta. 'Grand Canyon' is just the hosta for the 'Americana Series'.
