I've grown a lot of different Hosta varieties in my time, but Autumn Frost has to be the most brilliant colored I've ever seen or grown. WOW!! Everybody needs to grow this plant.David, Iowa, United States, 3 years ago
Wonderfully easy! Never disappoints. By dividing my 'clumps', not only does it continue to maintain the health of the plant, but allows me to have this hosta throughout my gardens w/out costing a dime at the local garden stores! Sharing with friend & neighbors is a plus, because it rarely will die no matter who has a 'green thumb' or not!Cassandra Luby, Missouri, United States, 6 years ago
