Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with hundreds of varieties now readily available. This big specimen selection has heart-shaped blue-grey leaves streaked with creamy-white in the center in spring, turning solid blue-green by summer. Near-white flowers appear in midsummer. Excellent in 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. Elegans group. While deer enjoy eating Hosta, this variety may be slightly less palatable to deer than others.
