Hosta ‘June’


Hosta

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.277.930


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 medium-sized specimen selection has bright yellow leaves with a streaky blue-green margin. Pale lilac flowers appear in July. 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. Slugs may need to be controlled.
