Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas due to their versatility, with hundreds of varieties now readily available. They form sturdy mounds of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This medium to large selection has large, oblong, lightly-corrugated, green leaves with wide creamy-white margins. Lavender flowers appear midsummer and may attract hummingbirds. Somewhat slug resistant. Hosta go completely dormant in the fall, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid-spring. Clumps may be easily divided in the spring or fall but plants may be left alone for years. This selection is a great combination of excellent vigor and unusual leaf shape from Tony Avent of Plant Delights Nursery in North Carolina.
