Hosta ‘Barbara Ann’


Hosta

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.700.520


Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with hundreds of varieties now readily available. They form sturdy mounds of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This large selection has thick, corrugated, blue-green leaves with broad, creamy margins that lighten to white as it matures. Near white flowers appear in midsummer and may attract hummingbirds. Discovered in Great Britain by two lab technicians, Barbara and Ann, hence its name. Good slug resistance. Suitable for planting in mixed containers and 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. Sport of H. sieboldiana ‘Elegans’.
