This grower is sure of this plant identification.
Unique, striking little plant. Narrow leaves have a cream centre and two tone green margins. It is, however, named for other properties. It's flower scapes are a conspicuous rosey red colour, and atop of these are small purple flowers, followed by red seed capsules. Generally a smallish plant to about 50cm wide, but can be stronger. Best out of sun in hottest part of the day as the leaf centre can scorch.
Hosta ‘Cherry Berry’. Hosta with more narrow cream leaves with two-tone green margins. Small purple flowers.
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.
Grown for their decorative foliage. Form large clumps that are excellent for ground cover. Attracts humming birds in suitable geographical locations.
