I live in a basement apartment. At the bottom of the outdoor stairs that lead to my front door, I have a plant stand with a container. I’ve had an Ostrich Fern there for a while, but it gets an hour of intense sun each day, and it definitely suffered in those conditions. I replaced it with. ‘Seducer’ Hosta and it is THRIVING. It has endured the sun it gets, and has two new leaves coming in already. Thank you, PW!

Simply the finest hosta I have ever grown and I have grown several hundred through the years. Great substance and color, it really stands out in my garden. Your eyes naturally go to Seducer when in the garden. The best by far.Stuart Asch, Michigan, United States, 11 years ago
