Hosta 'Great American Expectations' is a new introduction that may be the answer to those who complained that H. 'Great Expectations' grows too slow. Selected by two of America's top hosta gurus, Van Wade and Ed Elslager, this mutation reportedly grows much faster and larger than its parent H. 'Great Expectations'. Each 4' wide clump is topped in late spring with 2' tall scapes of light lavender flowers.
