Hostas are easy to grow ground cover for shady borders or for growing on pots on shaded patios. Hosta sieboldiana var. elegans is an RHS Award of Garden Merit holder, which is strong-growing, clump-forming. Hosta plants will thrive in moist, damp, dark borders, or difficult, dry shady borders.
The Giant Blue Hosta has architectural, blue-green foliage, which is great for the shaded end of cottage garden borders. In the summer, the robust growth plays host to pale lilac, bell-shaped flowers appear on stems held above the foliage. Height: 100cm (39"). 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.
