Hosta 'Vim and Vigor'

Registered by Walters Gardens, Inc. of Michigan in 2000, this is a sport of H. 'Sum and Substance'. This giant size (29 inches high) mound has shiny, dark green foliage that curls and is somewhat unruly. Pale lavender flowers bloom on 48 inch tall scapes from late July into August.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "I'm sure that a properly fertilized, well-watered specimen of 'Vim and Vigor' will become much larger than what I've seen so far. In fact, it should exceed the dimensions of Van Wade's famous specimen of 'Sum and Substance'."

Similar cultivars include H. 'Grand Total', H. 'Green Gables' and H. 'Irish Hills'.
