Tropical Dancer Hosta
Wave The Green
The Hosta Tropical Dancer, Hosta 'Tropical Dancer', puts on a colorful show with its heart-shaped wavy green leaves. These elongated leaves are trimmed with creamy white margins that are tightly ruffled and serrated. The margins brighten to white later in the season.
Forming a broad showy clump in the garden, ‘Tropical Dancer’ is a strong grower and produces lavender flowers on upright scapes in the summer.
Plant this low care plant 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. ‘Tropical Dancer’ is most at home in shady, woodland settings and often works well as specimen or edging plant.
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.
With its great form and ruffled, wavy leaves, this ‘Tropical Dancer’ hosta almost seems to be in motion!
