Tall and striking, fast-growing variety of Hosta reaching up to an eventual height of 60cm. Lovely large rounded, textured sea-green blue tinged leaves edged with creamy/yellow. Planting in light shade and not full sun will preserve the deep colours on the leaves and prevent the leaf edges from scorching. The near white flowers appear in late June.
Hostas originate from China and Japan and are arguably one of the best perennials for shade, along with ferns. They prefer a part shade/shady spot in a tub, container or the border and need a position in the garden with well-drained but moist soil.
They are predominantly grown for their highly decorative, compact, clump-forming leaf shapes and forms, with the flowers being of secondary importance, but that is not to demean them, the attractive tall stems hold either white, lilac or purple bell-shaped flowers in the summer.
*Hostas can be a magnet for slugs when the new young leaves appear in the spring so be vigilant. They appear to prefer the smoother leafed varieties and less so the more textured/ribbed leaf ones.
