This grower is sure of this plant identification.
Small variety with narrow lance shaped leaves. This is a variety that does not seem suited to tissue culture and I have worked hard to develop a stable strain of it from divisions. The long, slender leaves have a fine cream edge, with a regular wave to it. Forms a dense, stoloniferous (creeping) clump to about 40cm wide with good purple flowers.
Hosta ‘Stiletto’. Fast growing Hosta with long, thin green leaves with a rippled white margin. Will form a dense mound. Purple striped flowers in July.
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.
