2021 Hosta of the Year
The glossy foliage with incredible variegation of Hosta Rainbow’s End gives a striped appearance. Streaks of yellow brighten to creamy white in summer amidst dark green margins – each leaf sports a unique pattern. Lavender flowers hover just above foliage on showy red scapes in late summer. This dazzler received the American Hosta Growers Hosta of the Year in 2021. You’ve found the pot of gold with our Rainbow’s End. Hosta thrive in shade, even when in competition with tree roots. Lush foliage in diverse colors, heights and texture. It is hard to find a garden that won’t benefit from incorporating some of these versatile plants.

Hosta General Information

Hosta display lush foliage in diverse colors, heights, and textures. Their ability to excel in shade has captured gardeners' hearts everywhere. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

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.
