AHS Hosta of the year 2000. Big, bold plant, best early in the season around May and June, when the margins of its wedge-shaped leaves display a bright gold margin, which fades to a less exciting cream later in the year. Leaves have a frosted green colour with good veining and a little waving, held fairly upright to make a tall clump that can exceed a metre wide. Good in the border and can make an outstanding big pot specimen, as shown here, behind a batch of Sherbourne Swift.
Hosta ‘Sagae’. Big, bold plant best in May and June. Green leaves have a gold margin that fades to cream later in the season.
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.
