Description

Hosta are one of the best shade-loving plants, thriving in moist, damp, dark areas, but also coping well with dry shade. The bold, colourful foliage is robust and weatherproof. Plants are quick-growing, clump-forming and are maintenance-free.

Hosta fortunei 'Albomarginata' has particularly eye-catching leaves, which are ribbed, puckered and in edged in creamy-white. During the height of summer, a surprise display of showy, sometimes fragrant, flowers. Height: 55cm (22"). Spread: 100cm (39").


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. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Hosta plants in sun or dappled shade, on rich, moist, well-drained soil. Hosta fortunei ‘Albomarginata’ will particularly enjoy a deeply shaded border. 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 Innes No. 3.
More Info
Water Hosta plants regularly throughout summer until fully established. 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.
