A hosta with one of the biggest leaves available! It has huge corrugated green leaves up to 45cm wide which are a blue-green when they emerge. Hostas make great plants for shady or lightly shaded areas, and prefer damp soils, although they can cope with drier soils and full sun. Also good in a container. Hostas look better in the first half of the year. They have tall purple flowers (up to 75 cms), but most definitely grown for the leaves. Hostas need fertile soil, so mulch well in winter (when the disappear) with plenty of garden compost or well-rotted manure. They are prone to slug damage, so not ideal for a garden with lots of slugs. 3L container. Please note, items displayed on this website may not be available in each of our shops. (A)
