Design IdeasThis very large Hosta fills a lot of space in the shade garden. Blue corrugated leaves offer a unique texture against smoother Hosta for an interesting and diverse foliage garden. Leaves are a cooler color than the traditional greens and best combined with creamy rather than golden variegated plant.
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.
