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. Rubbery, corrugated, blue-green leaves have a narrow, yellow thunderbolt down the center; this flash turns creamy-white by midsummer. Near-white flowers appear on 26″ scapes in midsummer. 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.
Hostas grow best in moist, well-drained, highly organic soils with a pH between 5.5 and 7.5. Sandy loam is better than clay because it provides more aeration for the roots.
Upright, mounded habit.
Blue leaves with a narrow gold center that turns creamy white.
