Good glossy leaved small Hosta. Dark green leaves have a lovely satin sheen and a white margin, usually pencil thin but sometimes a bit wider. Slight tendency to revert, so worth removing the plain divisions when they appear. Like most Hostas, the plant quite enjoys some sympathetic disturbance in the growing season! Lavender flowers in later summer. The clump will reach 15cm tall and 30cm wide. Good in a small container and tough enough for border, or as an unusual alpine with enough water.
Hosta ‘Dixie Chick’. Dark green leaves with a white margin, which is usally quite fine. Lavender coloured flowers in late summer.
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.
