An all time favourite for many. AHS Hosta of the year 2001. A remarkable sport of Halcyon that emerges in the spring with a gold centre, blue margin and streaks of green in between. Later in the season colour will vary with position. In deep shade even the centre will become bluish, in sun the edge will change to green and the centre to cream. Some of the leaves have extraordinary variegation and you can spend a long tome marvelling at them. Will grow to about 70cm, in a pot or in the ground.
Funkia, Plantain lily
Hosta ‘June’ PBR (Funkia). This variety has heart-shaped, smooth, glaucous, grey-blue leaves, centrally and irregularly variegated yellow and yellow green. Racemes of bell-shaped, lavender-grey flowers are borne on glaucous scapes in summer.
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.
