HOSTA: It is difficult to find a garden that is without this versitile East Asian native. Lush foliage in diverse colors, heights and textures, coupled with its ability to excel in deep shade have captured gardeners’ hearts everywhere.
Very popular and undemanding perennial. Grown mostly for its decorative foliage, plants remain attractive from spring to frost. Most flower mid-July to early August. Hosta prefer partial shade, although a few will tolerate sun with adequate moisture. Use as a ground coever, for edging, or as an accent plant in the shady border.
Large, a sport of S. Elegans, forms huge clumps of rounded blue-green leaves with wide creamy white margins, thick puckered foliage has good substance and is pest resistant. Near white flowers bloom mid-summer.
