Cream edges all the way, 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!'). 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. 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 sprouted antenna!

Those antennae attract loads of hummingbirds and Pollinators to your garden! But, 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. Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 3 to 9 and reaching 12-18 inches and 28-30 inches wide at maturity, these are low-care perennials.

Planting and Application:

Wheee! is most at home in shady, woodland settings and often works well as a focal point or edging plant. The blooms add winged visitors to your shade gardens and look great as tall focal points in bouquets and floral arrangements.

These smaller perennials look great in containers and large planters as fillers, thrillers, and spillers! Playing in the shaded entertainment area, or on a covered porch and patio as unique and curious accents in the shade garden! Their low-growing nature means fantastic facer plants along the shaded side of a hedge or row of evergreen trees, beneath a tree canopy, or as skirting around larger shrubs that may have gotten leggy stems in their age.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Plant Wheee! Hostas as low-growing, low-care Perennial specimens 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. 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. They do best with a 3-4 inch thick layer of arborist mulch chips to help hold in moisture. Deadhead as blooms fade, and prune back the foliage once it dies back in the fall. They appreciate being divided every 3-5 years.
