Cream Edged All the Way With Wheee Hosta

  • Green Leaves Have Ripples and Ruffles
  • Cream Edges Extend to Crown
  • Lavender Flowers
  • Loved By Pollinators

A variety so great you can't help but exclaim "Wheee!" It's probably why this adorable perennial was given the name Wheee! Hosta (Hosta 'Wheee!' PP23565).

Wheee! has amazing foliage that shows off its appealing colors. The light green leaves have cream-colored margins, and they extend from the tip all the way down the petiole to the crown.

The leaves themselves are an interesting sight to see as their edges ripple and ruffle slightly. Giving it added texture. Having excellent substance, the leaves are resistant to slugs. That's one less thing you'll have to worry about when planning your shade garden.

This lovable leafy plant has more than just foliage to give though, in midsummer light lavender flowers appear on purple spikes. They'll shoot up from the foliage, giving the appearance that this hosta has grown antenna!

Plant this low care specimen 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. Wheee! is most at home in shady, woodland settings and often works well as specimen or edging plant.

Hostas grow best 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. It is best to keep areas around hostas clear of excess leaf debris to reduce the presence of slugs and snails.

Due to its versatility and ease of care, Wheee! hostas are extremely popular perennials for all gardeners! Order one for your garden today!
