Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews Video
A lovely cultivar with thick, variegated leaves that have a naturally stiff habit. The heart shaped foliage is yellow, fading to white towards the centre of each leaf, with irregular blue green margins. From June to July, Hosta 'Great Expectations' produces white, bell shaped flowers above the foliage. Although slow growing, this superb variety is well worth the wait and proves to be reasonably slug resistant. Height: 70cm (27"). Spread: 120cm (48").

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.

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.
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???
