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 medium selection is a real standout with leaves that emerge chartreuse, quickly develop a wide creamy-white margin and darker green streaking in between. Lavender flowers appear in midsummer amd may attract hummingbirds. For best colouration, provide a couple of hours of sunlight per day. Suitable for planting in mixed containers and 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 also be left alone for years.
