Design Ideas: Exceptional hosta for massing beneath the canopy of shade trees. Perfect for fleshing out foundation beds under low windows. Popular candidate for sideyards and smaller urban plots suffering from over-influence by multistory buildings. A real standout in large pots.

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.

History

Hosta is the grown up cousin to the plantain weed, which came to America with colonials. It naturalized so easily that Native American's claimed it sprang up wherever the white man walked.
