June Hosta

juneOne of the prettiest hosta in our collection is June.  June presents hereself with a dense, medium-sized mound of gold-centered foliage and has a thick substance to the leaves.   The mature height of a June hosta is 16″ and can go about 30-35″ wide.    The blue-green margin that often streaks into the center turns a medium gold by mid-summer.  The flower spikes bloom in late July through mid-August and are a pale bluish lavender. 

June was also named Hosta of the Year in 2001 by the American Hosta Society.   We are proud of the many different varieties of hosta that we carry and we will highlight many of them here in our blog now through the growing season!   Stay tuned.
