Hosta 'Pilgrim' (Large Plant)

Plantain Lily

Hardy Perennial

Hosta 'Pilgrim' sports variegated foliage with moss-green centres and pale gold margins that fade to white over time. The mauve coloured flowers appear above the leaves in July. One of the more compact cultivars, it will form a dense clump of heart shaped foliage relatively quickly thanks to its vigorous habit. A lovely little Hosta for borders, woodland areas or a damp, shady spot at the edge of a pond. Height: 20cm (8"). Spread: 53cm (21").

Culinary note: The best part to use is the hoston, the rolled up leaf as it emerges in the spring. Cooking depends on the size of the hostons, small ones can be fried for a few minutes, going well in stir fries. Thicker ones are better boiled and used as a vegetable.

Grow Hosta plants in sun or dappled shade, on rich, moist, well-drained soil. Before planting, work some fresh compost or general fertiliser into the top 20cm of the soil. Alternatively plant Hosta in patio containers in soil based compost such as John In???
In autumn, remove old foliage and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant. Lift and divide Hosta plants in autumn every third year to maintain their vigour.
