HOSTA, FIREWORKS (Plantain lily)
Enlarge Picture Enlarge picture


HOSTAS make ideal ground cover plants for sun or partial shade and once established can be left undisturbed for years. The variegated varieties keep their colouring better if planted in semi-shade. They thrive in well-drained but moisture retentive soils and this should be enriched with leaf-mould, well rotted compost or leaf-mould. The foliage is most attractive and in the summer the plants are crowned with racemes of nodding trumpet-like white to purple flowers. They are also good planted in pots and containers and can brighten up a shady area with their gold or silver variegated foliage.
Pot grown 3.99 each, buy any 3 or more Hostas at 3.49 each.

A truly amazing dwarf variety as the leaf form and colour is 'out of this world'. The funnel shaped, narrow, pointed leaves have streaked, dark green margins and pristine white centres, giving a fabulous colour contrast. Due to the vibrancy of the colours this variety is ideal for brightening up shady spots in the garden. In July and August a good cluster of dainty, pale lavender-pink trumpet shaped flowers appears. Fast growing attaining full size rapidly. Good slug resistance. Plant in partial to full shade. Height 20-25cm, spread 25-30cm.
