Description

2004 Hosta of the Year.

Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with hundreds of varieties now readily available. Plants form a sturdy mound of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This huge specimen selection has enormous chartreuse-yellow leaves with a quilted texture. Pale lavender flowers appear in July. Also good for planting in mixed containers or tubs. Hosta go completely dormant in the fall, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid spring. Easily divided in either spring or fall, but plants may be left alone for years. Tolerates sun fairly well.
