Hosta ‘Velvet Moon’


Hosta

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.710.550


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. This large sized selection has thick, dark green leaves with a wide yellow-gold border. Lavender flowers in summer. Sport of H. ‘Abiqua Moonbeam’. Sun tolerant. Suitable also 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.
