Hosta Orange Marmalade
Hosta Orange Marmalade, Hosta 'Orange Marmalade' (PP#16,742), is a unique mutation of Hosta 'Paul's Glory'. In the spring, the leaves emerge green, and then quickly develop a yellow center with a hint of orange and a green margin. The leaf center fades to parchment white during the summer, while the edge remains dark green.
'Orange Marmalade' is an excellent specimen with unique coloration and pale lavender flowers. It will definitely be a "Top 10 Hosta" in the near future!
This 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 is at home in well 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 'Orange Marmalade' 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.
This 'Orange Marmalade' is very popular and sells out quickly!
