Plant Finder: about Hosta hybrids ‘Blue Cadet’

Common names

Hosta

Description

Hosta hybrids ‘Blue Cadet’ (Hosta). This is a perennial species which will form a large mound of rich-looking foliage. The foliage can be variegated light or dark green or a bluish-green, and either smooth or textured. They will grow well when grown in moist, well drained soil that is rich with organic matter. They will grow in full sun or full shade, depending on the species.

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.
