Design IdeasSince this vigorous Hosta spreads out to three feet in diameter, a cluster of several will cover a surprising amount of ground. Its variegation is ideal for contrast with other foliage plants and creates illusions of sun dappling in shaded gardens. Plant in wide terra-cotta pots for the terrace, shaded patio or deck. Best under tree canopies, in northern exposures or as a filler in shaded shrub borders. A quick and reliable leafy beauty for fountains and in between rocks around water gardens.
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.
