Hosta ‘Robert Frost’


USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.710.670

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 large selection features heart-shaped, frosty blue-green leaves with yellow margins. Pale lavender flowers in mid summer. H. ‘Banana Sundae’ × H. ‘Frances Williams’. 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.
