Hosta ‘True Blue’


USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.700.570

Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with literally hundreds of varieties now readily available. Plants form a sturdy mound of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This large selection creates an impressive display, forming a mound of wavy, heavily-corrugated, slightly cupped, blue-green leaves. Near-white flowers with a distinct lavender stripe appear midsummer which may attract hummingbirds. Great for the shady border 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 the plants may also be left alone for years.
