    • I just received this and another hosta in the mail, gallon size. None of the leaves were broken, but there was just a bag around the container, so half the soil had fallen out and the roots very disturbed. Pretty disappointed that there was only 1 sprout and 4 leaves for an almost $40 pot. I would have expected that from the cheaper, smaller size. Will update this review end of season or next year if the plant survives and comes back next year.
