Common Name: Hosta
A reverse sport of ‘St. Paul’ and a tetraploid form of ‘Paul’s Glory’. Thick, blue-green leaves have wide, 2″ chartreuse margins that mature to gold and produce an upright, spreading clump. Light lavender flowers are produced in early to midsummer.
Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today’s gardens due to their versatility in the landscape. Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. Hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust, etc.
