Hosta ‘Lakeside Rhapsody’


USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.710.370

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 medium to large sized selection from the Lakeside series features thick, wavy, blue-green leaves with uneven, cream margins. Lavender flowers in summer. 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. Slugs may need to be controlled.
