Key West Hosta
One of the Largest Gold Hostas
Hosta Key West, Hosta 'Key West', is a member of the 'Americana Series'. This very large, fast growing Hosta is a cross between Hosta 'Elatior' and 'High Noon'.
Hosta 'Key West' is a lovely plant with its smooth heart shaped leaves and pleasing gold color. Lavender flowers are formed in early summer.
The bright gold, heart-shaped leaves are very large and form a clump of foliage that when mature, will reach over 6' across!
'Key West', is a low care perennial and is ideal for shady positions and is one of the most popular for landscapes. 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 'Key West', in an area that receives the right amount of light. The leaves need some morning sun to bring out the best coloration; too much sun will burn the leaves.
Being one of the largest gold Hostas, 'Key West' is a shockingly beautiful and superb shade plant with a tropical flair!
