Comment GIANT HOSTA - The thick, dark green leaves are bordered with wide, jetting, golden yellow margins which fade to creamy white in summer.
Care Seed heads may be removed to improve appearance.  However, the seeds do provide food for birds and may be left.  Cut foliage to ground after killing frost or in the early spring.
