This grower is sure of this plant identification.
Small but strong plant. Narrow blue-green wavy leaves with a cream edge. When mature makes a dense clump about 60cm wide. Lavender flowers in summer. Generally quite robust, and will thrive in most positions, although a touch of shade will keep it looking fresh for longer.
Hosta ‘Dark Star’. Hosta with more slender blue-green leaves with a cream margin. Lavender coloured flowers in summer. Will make a clump up to 60cm.
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.
