A very smart variety. Large leaves with a good crinkly texture. Wide margins start off cream and fade to white. Forms a fairly open clump to about 1m wide. Best in a little shade in a big pot or in the ground. Pale lavender flowers in June.
Hosta ‘Formal Attire’. Hosta with large green leaves with wide cream margins that fade to white. Lavender-coloured flowers in early summer. Clump up to 1m wide.
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.
