Hosta ‘Popcorn’


USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.700.780

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 selection has thick, rounded and cupped leaves that in spring have blue margins and creamy yellow centres with green jetting toward the centre. Later in the season the leaves pucker and turn creamy-white with blue-green margins. Pale lavender flowers in mid summer. 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.
