Hosta - Captain Kirk
A Sun Tolerant Hosta
Hosta Captain Kirk, Hosta 'Captain Kirk', is a notable, improved sport of the very popular Hosta 'Gold Standard'.
The leaves have bright gold centers that contrast nicely against the dark green margins. It is much more sun tolerant than other hostas!
Plant in an area that receives morning sun for the best golden leaf color. As you can imagine, the contrast is truly stunning!
Each 3' wide clump is topped with lavender flowers in midsummer.
The thick, waxy leaves resist slugs.
'Captain Kirk' is a low care perennial that needs high-filtered or dappled sunlight for clean, healthy growth.
Morning sun is tolerable and will help to intensify the leaf colors, but this hosta can handle more sun that most other hostas.
Hostas grow best in moist, well-drained, highly organic soils with a pH between 5.5 and 7.5.
Aren't you about ready to boldly grow what none of your neighbors have grown before?
This glowing two-toned beauty is a robust grower, has a neat appearance, and puts on a star performance!
