Hosta Bedford Rise and Shine is a bright small plant reaching 8"-12" in height and 12"-18" in width at maturity. Emerges with deep emerald leaves embellished with a bright gold border, and as the season progresses the green deepens a little and the gold fades to cream. Red blushing of the petioles and and pretty mid purple flowers add to the overall colourful nature of this gem of a Hosta. Forms a dense clump, ideal for borders or pots that get morning sun but perhaps are shaded a bit more in the afternoon. Blue to purple flowers are held on tall scapes of about 26" tall. A good slug resistant Hosta with sun tolerant properties. A fast grower so can be split every 3 years or so.
