Hosta fluctuans 'Sagae'
Pronunciation: HOSS-tuh SUH-ga-eh
|Description||A classic hosta with big bold foliage that features a wide gold band of color along the leaf edges. The golden margins turn to a creamy white by midsummer. The thick foliage resists slug damage. Showy spikes of lavender flowers rise above the foliage in summer. An herbaceous perennial.|
|Light||Filtered sun, Full shade, Partial shade|
|Watering||Keep soil consistently moist but not soggy.|
|Mature Size||Forms foliage clump 18 in. tall, 36 in. wide; blooms reach 48 in. tall.|
|Special Features||Attracts Hummingbirds, Dramatic Foliage Color, Easy Care, Improved Pest and Disease Resistance|
|Flower Attributes||Showy Flowers|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Ground Cover|
|Design Ideas||Since 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.|
|Companion Plants||Coral Bells (Heuchera); Ligularia (Ligularia); Fuchsia (Fuchsia); Lungwort (Pulmonaria); Bleeding Heart (Dicentra)|
|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.|
