Hosta 'Sum And Substance'

Magnificent in a pot, this produces very large, deeply ridged, yellow leaves and upright stems of trumpet-shaped, lilac flowers. I have found this variety to be reasonably dislikable to slugs. The picture, taken in August, shows the leaves untouched - and I do nothing to protect my hostas.

Hardy perennial that survives temperatures of -10 degrees and more. All hostas fair better in a shady or partially shady spot as they like moist soils. In pots they grow also grow better in the shade or partial shade. Slugs love hostas. I use beer traps to help eradicate them - they like real ale, not lager, but the best option is pick them off after it has rained, or in the evening when the dew is settling in. Use a pair of gloves to put them in a bucket, then dispose of them as you see fit.
