Hosta
Latin name:
Hosta

Description: Well known garden plants grown for their large, imposing and often beautifully variegated leaves. H. ‘Frances Williams’ is a delightful mid-sized Hosta with large heart-shaped, glacous bluish-green leaves with irregular yellowy-green markings. Off-white, bell-shaped flowers are held above the foliage in summer, which are much loved by bees.

Hardiness: Very hardy though probably worth mulching in a really cold snap.

Height: 60cm when

Position: Full sun to shade position where the leaves are bigger out of direct sun

Soil: Any well drained garden soil

Water: Water well to establish. Heavily mulch to retain moisture in dry periods and water sparingly if under stress

Usage: At the front of borders and in woodland settings where they will slowly spread. Excellent as container plants

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and is keen to "manage" the effects of the weather on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and I hope that it will continue to grow, allowing global gardeners to communicate about the effects of climate change on our plants and the future of our gardens.
