Sought after miniature. Long narrow gold leaves of good substance with a wavy edge. Light purple flowers in June and July. As usual with miniatures, requires special cultural conditions.

Plant Finder: about Hosta ‘Dragon Tails’

Description

Hosta ‘Dragon Tails’. Miniature Hosta with slender golden yellow/green leaves with a wavy edge. Light mauve flowers in June/July

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.
