Hosta are among the most popular of perennials for shady areas, with literally hundreds of varieties now readily available. Plants form a sturdy mound of foliage, topped with lily-like blooms. This small selection features shiny, yellow leaves with dark green margins and green streaking. The centre of the leaves brighten to creamy-white in summer. Lavender flowers on red scapes appear in midsummer amd may attract hummingbirds. Suitable for planting in mixed containers and tubs. Hosta go completely dormant in the fall, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid-spring. Easily divided in either spring or fall, but plants may also be left alone for years.
