One of the largest hostas, Hosta 'Sum and Substance' (Plantain Lily) is a perennial forming a spreading mound of thick, broadly heart-shaped, light green leaves, up to 20 in. long (50 cm), turning chartreuse to gold depending on sun exposure. Shiny above and thinly glaucous below, the lush foliage provides color and texture to the landscape. Dense racemes of bell-shaped, fragrant, pale lavender flowers appear in summer, rising on scapes 44 in. tall (110 cm). 'Sum and Substance' is supposedly the most slug resistant of all the hostas, due to its waxy leaves. It is also a very eye-catching hosta for specimen planting with its gigantic, tropical-looking, paddle-shaped leaves.
