Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
A smaller leafed Plantain Lily which gets its name from the smooth blue-green foliage and produces pale purple bell-shaped flowers in the summer between June and July. They are great for borders or beds in shady spots in the garden. As it is one of the smallest in the Plantain Lily family it is ideal for smaller gardens. In the winter these will fall dormant and all dying foliage can be removed by mid-spring. Height: 50cm (19"). Spread: 50cm (19").

When growing Hostas, choose a position in partial or dappled shade on fertile, moist, well drained soil. Add plenty of well rotted manure to improve heavy clay or light sandy soils. Alternatively plant Hostas in patio containers in soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3.
In autumn, remove old foliage and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant. Lift and divide Hosta plants in autumn every third year to maintain their vigour.
