Home of the NO SMALL PLANTS!

We are a bona fide nursery where we grow plants. That means we don’t just pop our plants out of a tray and sell you a liner. Our plants are grown on to a bigger size, many times even to a mature plant!


Humble Hen Farm & Nursery

Height: 36.0 inches Spread:  60-72.0 inches

Common Name: Hosta 


Hosta ‘Sum and Substance’

  • One of the largest hostas available today, with 16″, broadly ovate leaves and a huge, mounded form
  • Leaf color varies with the amount of available sun from light green to chartreuse to gold; prefers ¼-¾ day of sun
  • Leaves are of good substance, corrugated, and glossy, giving them good slug resistance
  • Pale lavender, bell-shaped flowers on 48″ scapes in mid to late summer
  • Exhibits greater sun tolerance


Info: Our plants are grown in 5.25 x 5.25 x 5.25 inch pots and develop large root systems. These are not a small liner but a plant you can put right into your garden. That means you will get a bigger plant right away compared to a starter plant. We guarantee you will get a true to type healthy plant that you will love for years. If you have any problems or questions we are happy to help. During early spring plants may still be breaking dormancy so they may appear smaller than they will be when they fully leaf out. In Fall and Winter plants may be completely dormant. 

Shipping: We do not ship to Hawaii or Alaska due to cost and import restrictions.  Plants will be removed from their pots and loose soil removed and the rootball placed in a bag. We are an inspected nursery from the VA Dept of AG.
