Hosta ‘Orange Star’


Hosta

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.700.930


Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas. Plants form sturdy mounds of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This midsized specimen has bright yellow leaves with dark green margins and an orange glow from the centre. Lavender flowers appear in July. Beautiful new sport from H. ‘June Fever’. Likes the sun! If grown in morning sun, the thick leaf centers will be orange in spring and by August fade to a cream colour. If grown in the shade, you will have yellow leaves throughout the season that will not darken like the parent does. Grows slower. Will reach 10-12″ tall. USPP#22384: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
