Hosta ‘Tropical Dancer’


USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.710.490

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 medium to large sized selection forms a broad mound and has heart-shaped, green leaves with ruffled, cream to white margins. Lavender flowers in early to mid summer. Sport of H. ‘Spring Fling’. 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. USPP#21209: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
