A walk around the garden tonight, highlighted several of the large hosta. An old standard in the hosta line-up is Hosta Sum & Substance. It’s lime green / yellow color provides an accent to the various shades of green and brightens up the corner of the garden.
Hosta Komodo Dragon is a nice large green and stands out as either
a specimen hosta or simply a silent solider in letting the other more colorful hosta take the limelight.
Hosta Guardian Angel – my favorite – is a tri-colored blend of green, blue and a cream mix. Blended together – it provides that unique touch to your hosta display.
Hosta VIctory – a past winner of the AHS Hosta of the Year is a winner in that it is upright, somewhat vase shaped an stands up
and over other hosta plants. It’s variegation provides a contrast with plain colored hosta plants or other shade perennials.
Perhaps the largest hosta plant at maturity – Hosta
Empress Wu will be a show stopper. Earning the title of a Proven Winner – it’s mass will make you take notice. I have two Empress Wu – across the garden from each other and they have each grown into such nice plants. They are just beginning to send up their flower stalk and I am anxious at seeing their height this season. They are in their 4th full season and continue to get bigger each year.
These five hosta are all considered either large or extra large plants. You need to have space for them. They are impressive. Either as specimen plants are in the back of a shade garden to act as an anchor with other shade perennials,
We currently have four of these in stock and Komodo Dragon will be available in late summer.
