Make a splash with Hosta Waterslide! The rippled wavy lance-shaped leaves hold their blue color well into summer - whimsical and fun for interesting texture. Refreshing lavender flower scapes in summer hover just above the foliage. After a rain, droplets glisten like diamonds on the stunning foliage.

Hosta thrive in shade, even in competition with tree roots, hurray! It is hard to find a perennial garden that won’t benefit from incorporating some Hosta. From the Shadowland® Collection, Hosta Waterslide is considered a ‘Premium’ Hosta selected by a group of specialty hosta growers in zones 4-7. They must perform superbly, have exemplary garden presence and performance, a long season of appeal in the landscape, have leaves of good substance, and demonstrate a greater resistance to common garden pests.

Hosta General Information

Hosta display lush foliage in diverse colors, heights, and textures. Their ability to excel in shade has captured gardeners' hearts everywhere.

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.
