Hosta ‘June Fever’ features leaves with unusually glossy, bright gold centers surrounded by dark blue-green edging that sometimes extends to stripes. Displays lavender flowers. Morning sun brings out the best color. Hostas, also called Plantain Lilies, grow best in moist, well-drained, highly organic soils. A good partner for ferns. Although the flowers are attractive, Hostas are usually grown for their ornamental foliage.
