Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
This showy Plantian Lily really grabs the limelight with its orchid-like blooms. From midsummer, stems of purple, gently fragrant, star shaped flowers rise above neat mounds of particularly decorative foliage. The bright green leaves are deeply furrowed with undulating edges that give the whole plant a wonderful rippling appearance. Hosta 'Purple Sensation' is perfect for adding texture to the front of borders. Plant this hardy perennial in groups to form dense ground cover, or grow it a container as a decorative patio plant. Height: 50cm (19"). Spread: 40cm (16").

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.
Grow Hostas in sun or dappled shade on rich fertile, well drained soil. Improve your soil prior to planting by working in some compost or general purpose fertiliser. Dig a hole wide enough to accommodate the bareroot with its roots spread out and deep enough that the crown of the plant is just a few cm below soil level. Backfill the hole with soil and firm the plant in gently. Leave a slight depression around the plant as this will help to direct water towards the roots. Water well to settle the soil.
