Hosta ‘Christmas Tree’

For sale by Stafford Lake Nursery

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

One of my favourites. A strong growing plant, dark green leaves with a good cream border streaking back into the leaf with maturity. Lovely powerful corrugated texture. Named for the fact that the flower scapes are sometimes very leafy, giving a pyramidal effect. Definitely some imaginative powers employed there! Excellent specimen to about 60cm tall by 1m wide. The plants shown here are a batch of 1.5 litre plants ready for sale, but it gets more impressive with age.

Plant Finder: about Hosta ‘Christmas Tree’

Description

Hosta ‘Christmas Tree’. Distinctive darkish green, corrugated leaves with good yellow cream border. Strong grower.

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.
