Hosta tokudama 'Flavocircinalis'
|Description||An elegant groundcover type hosta with frosty, blue-green foliage surrounded by a wide, lustrous gold margin. The wide clump of variegated foliage adds stunning color contrast and texture to shady gardens, with its slender stalks of light lavender flowers adding to the beauty. An herbaceous perennial.|
|Light||Filtered sun, Full shade, Partial shade|
|Watering||Keep soil consistently moist but not soggy.|
|Mature Size||Foliage reaches 1 to 1 1/2 ft. tall, 4 ft. wide; blooms reach 2 ft. tall.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container|
|Design Ideas||This is a real groundcover Hosta that controls weeds in the very dark shadows beneath shrubs, evergreen conifers and deciduous shade trees. Great filler for light challenged sideyards and small urban courtyards. Blends beautifully into the floor of a woodland wild garden. Offers much needed color and texture at the shaded edges of water gardens and fountains.|
|Companion Plants||Bleeding Heart (Dicentra); Carpet Bugle (Ajuga); Coral Bells (Heuchera); Woodland Iris ( Iris innominata); Heartleaf Bergenia (Bergenia cordifolia)|
|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||Received the Best Variegated Leaf award for 2001.|
