Hosta sieboldiana ‘Elegans’


Hosta

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.278.650


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 large specimen selection has big, heart-shaped powdery-blue leaves, and stems of near-white flowers in midsummer. 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. Good slug resistance. Received a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit (1993). An old selection but still an excellent large blue-leaved type, and certainly considered to be a garden classic.
