Our Best Selling Hosta!

Gardeners are always looking for two things: 1) shade plants and 2) blue plants. Also known as funkia or plantain lily, Hosta Halcyon is a reliable winner that requires little attention.

The Halcyon Hosta is made for the shade and is the most interesting frosty ocean-blue color, earning it the 1997 Award of Merit (AGM).

It’s a vigorous (but slower) grower with ribbed, spear-shaped foliage that sits underneath white-to-lavender bell-shaped flowers from July to August.

But the real show is the foliage itself. Slug-resistant, attracts hummingbirds during blooming. 

Halycon Hosta grows in the familiar “fountain” mound shape to about 2’ tall and wide, and prefers full shade in a moist but well-drained spot.

Spectacular when planted in shade borders, around large shade trees and even in large containers. One of the best hostas available. Zones 4-8.

* Blue Spear Shaped Leaves
* White to Lavender Flowers
* Full Shade Plant
