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 midsized selection has thick, powdery blue-green leaves with creamy-yellow margins that later fade to white. Pale lavender flowers appear in August. Thick substance, so good slug resistance. Suitable for planting in mixed containers and tubs. Hosta go completely dormant in the fall, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid spring.

Light: Plant this leafy perennial in full shade. The ideal spot for this plant will receive about 4 hours of sunlight.

Watering: Stick to a consistent watering schedule for the first year. After Hosta is acclimated, it will not require frequent watering, but it will be helpful to give the plant a drink during a drought. Use moist, well-drained soil. Hosta plants are not heavy feeders, but applying balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring will support consistent growth.

 

Pro Tip: First Frost Hosta grows 12 to 16 inches tall and 30 to 36 inches wide. Create a dense border or mass planting by spacing plants 28 to 34 inches apart.
