Showy, Shiny, Rich Aureomarginata Hosta

  • Gorgeous, Deeply Textured Leaves
  • Easy Care Shade Plant
  • Wonderful Lavender Blooms in Summer

Dreaming of a backyard paradise? Aureomarginata Hosta (Hosta 'Fortunei Aureomarginata') is a superb choice to edge garden beds located in the shady spot under small trees, such as Western Redbud or Autumn Blooming Cherry.

Forming an upright, vase-like shape with arching, heart-shaped leaves edged in golden margins, this Hosta will brighten up any shady spot you may have. The leaves each reach a length of 8 to 10 inches.

Every summer, you'll also be rewarded with lilac colored, fairy bell shaped blossoms on the Aureomarginata Hosta that are held high above the leaves, reaching 3 feet upwards. This Hosta is low maintenance and compact in size, but not in visual impact!

Use this low maintenance charmer "en masse". That means it's best to plant 3, 5, 7 or 9 of these plants in a slightly zig-zagging pattern along the edge of your garden bed. You'll love the way it will naturalize to form natural drifts under your maturing trees, or along woodland paths. Try them in containers on your shaded backyard porch!

Plant in partial or full shade in any well drained soil for best results. Spent blooms can be pruned away, to help encourage further plant growth. Hostas can be divided as needed, in spring or fall time.

Variegated foliage is definitely on trend, so gardeners across the country are on the hunt for Hosta varieties, like the Aureomarginata. Order yours today!
