Hosta ‘Blue Cadet’


USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.278.110

Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas. Plants form sturdy mounds of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This medium sized selection has blue-green heart-shaped leaves maturing to green in summer. Pale lavender flowers appear mid summer. Vigorous grower. Great for massing or as a container specimen. Good slug resistance. Hosta go completely dormant in fall, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid-spring.
