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 stunning large specimen selection has powdery grey-blue leaves, edged in creamy white. Tall stems of lavender flowers appear in August. 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. Good slug resistance. While deer enjoy eating Hosta, this variety may be slightly less palatable to deer than others. A variegated sport of H.‘Krossa Regal’ introduced by Walters Gardens in 1987. Selected as the 2003 Hosta of the Year by the American Hosta Growers Association.
