SHADOWLAND® Collection

Common Name: Hosta

  • Huge dark green, deeply veined leaves of good substance can measure more than 1½' wide and long. Large leaves are formed as a young plant, though entire clump takes about 5 years growing in the ground to achieve mature size.
  • Strongly upright habit, forming a very tall and wide clump
  • Pale reddish violet flowers appear just above the foliage in early to midsummer
  • An outstanding focal point and topic of conversation in your shade garden!

Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today's gardens due to their versatility in the landscape. Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. Hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust, etc.
