Long Lived, No Fuss
A showy, compact mound of thick dark green foliage is swirled with creamy white flamed centers. Summer brings lavender flowers on thick stocks about 6” above the foliage. Across growing zones, Hosta are very forgiving and long-lived. Plant in well-draining soil for a great no-fuss perennial. Hosta Sting will provide a burst of tropical-like foliage. Hosta thrive in shade, even in competition with tree roots, hurray! Lush foliage in diverse colors, heights and texture. 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. 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.
