High Society Hosta
Color Changing Leaves in Small Plant
Hosta High Society, Hosta 'High Society' (PP#17,313), is a classy sport of Hosta 'June'. This compact beauty emerges in spring with a narrow, yellow center and wide, powder blue margins.
As the season progresses, the Hosta 'High Society' leaf center widens and brightens to white. Being a small sized hosta, it is great for containers or the front of a border.
Pale lavender flowers open just above the mound of foliage in late summer. Small and slow growing, but is worth the wait; makes a fantastic specimen.
'High Society' is a low care perennial and is ideal for shady positions, tubs and patio pots, and one of the most popular landscape uses. It is best to keep areas around hostas clear of excess leaf debris to reduce the presence of slugs and snails.
It grows well 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.
Plant 'High Society' in an area that receives the right amount of light. The leaves need some morning sun to bring the rich golden color out; too much sun will burn the leaves. 'High Society' goes completely dormant in the fall, and the dying foliage can be removed any time before mid spring.
This little compact beauty has the power to add a great amount of color to a small space!
