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 mid-sized selection produces a medium-large mound of glossy, deep green leaves with creamy-yellow margins that lighten to white as the season progresses. In late summer, very fragrant pale lavender to white flowers appear. Situated in a border with up to 6-8 hours of sunlight will produce more flowers. Excellent in a woodland garden and 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. First Hosta to receive the Hosta of the Year award from the American Hosta Growers Association in 1996.
