Hosta ‘Thunderbolt’


USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.278.810

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 specimen selection has big, heart-shaped blue-green leaves with a dramatic creamy-yellow centre, and stems of white flowers in midsummer. Also good 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. USPP#14232: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
