Pineapple Punch Hosta
Rippling Ruffled Lances
The Hosta Pineapple Punch, Hosta 'Pineapple Punch', has narrow, rippling, extremely ruffled, lance-shaped leaves that start off creamy yellow, and then turn white.
A lovely sport of Pineapple Upsidedown Cake, Pineapple Punch is medium sized with an arching mound.
It displays light lavender blossoms on tall flower scapes in late summer.
Since 'Pineapple Punch' is an excellent grower, spreading from underground rhizomes, it makes an outstanding border plant or groundcover!
Hostas grow best in moist, well-drained, highly organic soils with a pH between 5.5 and 7.5.
Sandy loam is better than clay because it provides more aeration for the roots. It is best to keep areas around hostas clear of excess leaf debris to reduce the presence of slugs and snails.
Plant 'Pineapple Punch' in an area that receives the right amount of light. The leaves need some morning sun to bring out the best coloration. Too much sun will burn the leaves. It is most at home in shady, woodland settings and often works well as specimen or edging plants.
For a fantastic look in a shaded area, plant 'Pineapple Punch' in mass plantings for an eye catching ground cover!
