Hosta ‘Orange Marmalade’


USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.700.320

Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with hundreds of varieties now readily available. Plants form sturdy mounds of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This medium selection has leaves that emerge slightly quilted and green but quickly develop a yellow centre with a hint of orange and dark green margins. As the season progresses, the centres lighten to an off-white but the dark green margins remain. Pale lavender flowers appear in summer. Excellent for borders or massing but also suitable for planting in mixed containers and tubs. Hosta go completely dormant in fall, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid-spring. While deer enjoy eating Hosta, this variety may be slightly less palatable to deer than others. A mutation of H. ‘Paul’s Glory’ bred by Bob Solberg. USPP#16742: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
