|Landscape Use||Border, Container|
|Design Ideas||This very large, colorful Hosta fills a lot of space in the shade garden. Bold, corrugated leaves offer a unique texture against smoother varieties for an interesting and diverse foliage garden. The predominately silver-blue leaves are a cooler color than the traditional greens and considering the center splash ages to creamy white, this plant looks best combined with creamy rather than other golden variegated plants.|
|Companion Plants||Astilbe (Astilbe); Coral Bells (Heuchera); Columbine (Aquilegia); Lungwort (Pulmonaria); Mukdenia (Mukdenia)|
|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.|
