Hosta 'American Icon' is surely that...one of the best new hostas to hit the market in years. This amazing sport of Hosta 'Choo Choo Train' makes a huge 5'+ wide clump of triangular green leaves, each edged with a dramatic wide yellow border. In summer, the clumps are topped with 3' tall spikes of white flowers. Be sure allow enough room for this to become a showstopper in your garden!
