Design IdeasThis is a great mound of gorgeous yellow-variegated leaves that turn the darkest corner into a fountain of light. Use as scattered relief amidst darker Hosta or other evergreen groundcover. Its coloring is a great accent between flowering shrubs or among Ferns.
Companion PlantsCombine with different Hosta to create a sea of foliage variations. Consider Halcyon Plantain Lily (Hosta x 'Halcyon') for blue leaves, Royal Standard Plantain Lily (Hosta x 'Royal Standard') for a rich green and Francee Plantain Lily (Hosta x 'Francee') for a creamy variegation.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
