Hosta ‘High Society’


USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.277.180

Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with hundreds of varieties now readily available. Plants form sturdy mounds of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This small specimen has thick powder-blue leaves with a yellow centre that later fades to creamy white. Taller stems of pale-lavender flowers appear in June. Great for edging and especially for planting in mixed containers or tubs. Relatively slow growing. Hosta go completely dormant in the fall, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid spring. Good slug resistance. A sport of ‘June’ registered by Hans Hansen of Shady Oaks Nursery in 2004. USPP#17313: unlicensed propagation restricted.
