|Design Ideas||Exceptional hosta for massing beneath the canopy of shade trees. Perfect for fleshing out foundation beds under low windows. A popular candidate for side yards and smaller urban plots suffering from over-influence by multistory buildings. A real standout in large pots paired with golden foliage.|

|Care||Provide slightly acidic, evenly moist, well-drained, humusy soil. Avoid harsh sun exposures. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge in early spring.|
|Lore||Hosta is the grown up cousin to the plantain weed, which came to America with colonials. It naturalized so easily that Native Americans claimed it sprang up wherever the white man walked.|
