Plant Finder: about Hosta sieboldiana ‘Blue Angel’

Description

Hosta sieboldiana ‘Blue Angel’. This species will produce large blue-green, heart-shaped leaves which will form a lush mound of foliage. The flowers are lilac to lavender and will appear on short stems just above the foliage in late spring and early summer. You can plant them in masses; they will form a stunning ground covering for under-planting with large trees. The soil should be rich, moist and well drained.

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.

    Unusual varieties of hostas. I have about 500 different varieties and am looking for more. Can offer about 1/3rd of these to swap (hosta for hosta), most of which are listed.
    Also named varieties of Agapanthus (I have 4 varieties to swap)
    Will sell plants as well if requested although not set up to post (other than for hostas sent bare-rooted) so buyer will need to collect.
