Hosta ‘First Frost’


Hosta

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.277.260


Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with hundreds of varieties now readily available. Plants form sturdy mounds of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This midsized selection has thick, powdery blue-green leaves with creamy-yellow margins that later fade to white. Pale lavender flowers appear in August. Thick substance, so 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. A sport of H. ‘Halcyon’, this is one of the best selections for late-season interest in the garden.
