Hosta ‘Silver Shadow’


USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.711.030

Hostas 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-sized selection features heavily corrugated, dark green, shiny leaves with very thin, silvery-white margin. Lavender flowers appear mid-summer. 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.
