The Hosta ‘Wide Brim’ has a deep blue-green center with very wide, irregular margins of cream with gold tints at maturity, making it very striking.
The lavender flowers bloom from July to August, however, hostas are not known only for their flowers. With this plant having a height of 20” and a spread of 32-36”, ‘Wide Brim’ hosta provides bright color in shade with its wonderful foliage.
Plant this low care plant 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. ‘Wide Brim’ 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, along with its striking mounded form, ‘Wide Brim’ is a favorite of landscape designers!
