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 sized selection has creamy-white leaves surrounded by a dark green, rippled margin. A third lighter green color appears between the margin and leaf centre. Light lavender flowers in mid summer. Sport of H. ‘Niagara Falls’. 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.
