An excellent foliage plant for damp conditions, Hosta 'Halcyon' has thick, crinkle-veined and glaucous grey-blue leaves up to 20 cm long, produced in a tight clump. The tough leaves are less appetizing to slugs, and consequently suffer less damage than many others. Spikes of mauve flowers 45 cm high appear in midsummer.

Description

Hosta ‘Halcyon’ (Funkia). This is a compact plant which will produce blue leaves.

Cultivation

All Hostas need some shade and few will thrive in open strong sunlight. A general rule is that the lighter foliage, the brighter the sunlight that will be tolerated. Variegated varieties tend to require more sun to keep their white, light green or gold stripes. The darker, bluer varieties need more shade.

Once established, Hostas are pretty tough and will spread horizontally to make excellent ground cover.

Interest and use

Grown for their decorative foliage. Form large clumps that are excellent for ground cover. Attracts humming birds in suitable geographical locations.
