A Favorite Among Hosta Lovers

Thought by some to be the very best Hosta variety, Francee Hosta is beloved for its vigorous growth and carefree nature along with its reliable, long-lasting display. In fact, it is often considered the best of the white-edged foliage Hostas. The dark green, heart-shaped leaves are delicately edged in pristine white, with a heavily textured appearance that maintains its coloring well throughout the seasons.

Summer brings the addition of tall stems that arise out of the foliage to display racemes of tiny, trumpet-shaped white blossoms that have been lightly dusted with a lavender hue.

Francee Hosta is a herbaceous perennial that has a low-growing, mounded nature and is adaptable to a variety of soils. It is at home in both shade and part shade, and can even thrive in some sun. Francee is drought tolerant (once established), and although a friend to wildlife, will not be attractive to deer or rabbits. It works well in containers and is even sometimes used in cut flower arrangements.

Hostas are usually thought of as requiring shade, but Francee is a variety that can perform well in both shade and sun. If you've given up on having a Hosta of your own because your yard has too much sun, think again. With the right balance of sun and shade, Francee may be the Hosta for you this year.
