Plant Finder: about Hosta ‘Feather Boa’

Description

Hosta ‘Feather Boa’. A fast-growing miniature Hosta with more yellow pointed leaves. Attractive lavender purple striped flowers in later part of summer.

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.
