Hosta are shade garden dependables. There are over 7000 registered cultivars. They come in a huge range of size (both leaf and plant), leaf colouring, variegation, growth rate and slug resistance. Though there are many hosta that survive the most grueling spots of sun and dry soil, surviving is not thriving, and you will find the most successful are planted in moist spots that get some shade-like where slugs thrive. 'Vulcan' is a sport of 'Captain Kirk'. Now with leaves that have a strong green margin and beautiful white centres, why would you choose Vulcan over Fire and Ice? Well, Vulcan is slightly bigger. There is also light green marking the transition between green and white. Growth rate might be a little faster than 'Fire and Ice'. Lavender flowers appear in summer.
