Hosta ‘Elvis Lives’

For sale by Stafford Lake Nursery

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

Peculiar name for a good plant. Sometimes described as having suede or velvet blue leaves, they certainly have a pleasant powdery blue effect. Long, arching and tapered with a good wavy edge and decent veining, they give a most pleasing effect. A good pot plant when young, or if planted out may make 90cm across.

Plant Finder: about Hosta ‘Elvis Lives’

Description

Hosta ‘Elvis Lives’. Hosta with more slender suede or velvet blue leaves.

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.
