Large Hosta With Striking Blue Heart Shaped Leaves
Beginning gardeners sometimes find shade gardening a challenge. What will grow well, what will thrive, what will stand out and make my shade garden pop? The answer to that is easy – Hosta. Hosta plants love the shade and with their form and colors bring an easy sophistication to the shade garden.
A great Hosta to start with is Hosta Elegans (Hosta Sieboldiana Elegans).
This hosta is extra-large with eye-catching heart-shaped leaves. The leaves are a beautiful shade of blue-green and have such a unique texture they look almost as if they have been stitched by a seamstress.
As if the striking leaves weren’t enough, they sport long wands of white flowers from July to August. The flowers make the plant reach 30” tall and they spread 48-60” wide. Give this elegant lady room to grow!
Hosta ‘Elegans’ needs to be planted in full shade in any moist, well-drained area. Use this low care perennial in shady woodland settings, foundation plantings or your favorite pot.
A great choice for any beginner gardener, this blue-green giant hosta will certainly be outstanding wherever it is planted!
