This grower is sure of this plant identification.
1987 introduction but still seldom seen in the UK. Rounded, rugose, glaucous green leaves of good substance with a wide chartreuse margin giving an unusual colour combination. Makes an interesting border specimen to about 1m wide.
Hosta ‘El Capitan’. Hosta with glaucous green leaves with a yellow cream margin.
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.
