Plant Finder: about Hosta fortunei ‘Francee’

Common names

Plantain lily, Renge-giboshi

Description

Hosta fortunei ‘Francee’ (Plantain lily). Produces ovate to heart-shaped, slightly cupped, puckered, olive-green leaves, with irregular white margins. Arching leafy-scapes, bear funnel-shaped, lavender-blue flowers in summer.

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.
