Hosta ‘Virginia Reel’


USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.710.540

Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with hundreds of varieties readily available. They form sturdy mounds of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This small sized selection forms a pinwheel-like mound of pointed, lance-shaped, blue-green leaves with a yellow margin that matures to creamy-yellow as the season progresses. Lavender flowers appear mid summer. Excellent for shady rock gardens and troughs. 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.
