Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Wide heart shaped leaves with irregular, buttery yellow margins form broad mounds of foliage. The pale blue funnel shaped blooms of Hosta ‘Wide Brim’ appear on sturdy flower spikes from July to August. This RHS AGM variety makes a fabulous addition to borders, woodland gardens and patio containers, producing the best colour in a shady position. Supplied as bareroots. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Culinary information: The best part to use is the hoston, the rolled up leaf as it emerges in the spring. Cooking depends on the size of the hostons, small ones can be fried for a few minutes, going well in stir fries. Thicker ones are better boiled and used as a vegetable.

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.
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.
