Earth Angel is one of the largest blue-variegated Hostas and is the first giant blue Hosta to have a border! The dramatic foliage will light up the dreary shady spots in your landscape!
Hosta Earth Angel, (Hosta 'Earth Angel'), is a lovely variegated sport of the award-winning Blue Angel Hosta. Earth Angel is an impressive specimen with large heart-shaped, blue-green leaves with wide creamy margins.
Quilted and textured, it's so curious to watch water bead up on the waxy leaves of Hosta, turning a rainy day into something special.
With pale lavender flowers appearing on 40" scapes in midsummer. Looking like long purple trumpets, these blooms attract a host of butterflies and hummingbirds!
This Hosta has high slug resistance and was chosen as the Hosta of the Year in 2009 by the American Hosta Society!
Earth Angel is an outstanding specimen plant, covering a 3-4 foot wide area of the garden with amazingly impressive leaves! Like all Hosta, it is most at home in shady, woodland settings and works well as an accent or edging plants!
Perfect for shady Asian and Zen-inspired gardens, lending a cool and calming presence to areas for meditation and relaxation. In fact about any garden design looks more peaceful with a few Hosta!
Contemporary plantings and informal Cottage gardens alike benefit from these large perennials. Borders look divine with long rows of Hosta, consequently so will your edging, along long beds, drives and shady paths.
Skirting trees with these lovely perennials will reciprocally benefit from the generous shade the trees provide. Large shrubs too will look immensely better having their bare stems hidden from view without the worry about roots interfering with each other!
Large planters and containers in the dappled shade around your patio or even a shaded balcony will benefit from the graceful presence of these impressive plants. The cool coloration and eye-catching growth will decorate garden rooms with sculptural decor.
Butterfly gardens and your cottage gardens will get a traditional look with the addition of a few of these curious perennials! Fringe shady hardscapes and ring pergola or gazebos in cool, calming foliage.
For a truly unique spectacle, an en masse planting of Earth Angel Hosta will highlight woodland edges and shady swaths in lush greenery.
Earth Angel's big blue-green leaves emerge in early spring and burst out of the ground year-after-year, just sparkling in the morning sun!
High-filtered or dappled sunlight is necessary for clean, healthy growth. Morning sun is tolerable and will help to intensify the leaf colors, but hot afternoon sun is usually deadly to Hostas!
Highly resistant to heat and humidity long as they're given adequate shade and moisture, especially throughout the hottest part of the growing season. Tolerant of dry shade, Hosta does best in filtered or dappled shade and part sun, tolerating the latter in cooler summer climates.
This low-care perennial grows 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. Though it's not particular on the type of soil, anything that is moist, well-drained.
A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.
Once frosts arrive, Hosta is an herbaceous perennial that dies back to the ground and emerges again in early spring. Be sure to remove dead leaf matter from the area to prevent the spread of fungal issues.
This gorgeous, giant blue-variegated Hosta will certainly be outstanding wherever it is planted! Your garden will be brightened on a large scale with the addition of an Earth Angel Hosta! Turning the dreary shady spots into dreamy ones! Order from Nature Hills Nursery today!
