Enticing as its name, bright yellow centers edged in dark green capture the sunlight to illuminate any garden space. In deeper shade, centers will transition to chartreuse. Showy red speckled petioles (leaf stems) streak color up into the leaves. Brightens gardens even on gloomy days.

H. Island Breeze was named One of the Best New Shade Perennials for 2014 by Better Homes and Gardens Magazine. Hosta thrive in shade, even in competition with tree roots, hurray! It is hard to find a garden that won’t benefit from incorporating some Hosta.

Hosta General Information

Hosta display lush foliage in diverse colors, heights, and textures. Their ability to excel in shade has captured gardeners' hearts everywhere. Good selection for the coldest areas (zones 3 & 4), good selection for Gulf states (zones 8, 9, & 10).

Hosta Plant Care

Hosta are generally carefree. Remove the spent flower stalks if seeding is not wanted. (Not all varieties will seed.) Be aware that seedlings are rarely true to the parent plant. Unwanted or damaged leaves can be clipped off at the base at any time. The entire plant will die back for the winter and spent foliage can usually be raked or clipped off easily in late fall or early spring. Can be divided in spring or fall every 3-5 years if desired.
