Hosta (Medium)

Plant Type:

HOSTA


Hosta 'Tokudama 'Aureonebulosa' - 25% off Medium. Strong-textured rounded leaves cup and exhibit heavy puckering. Centers of leaves are golden-green/ chartreuse with a broad blue-green margin. The blue-green color streaks irregularly with no two leaves exactly alike. It is beautiful. Leaves mature with a golden heart limned in dark green. Nearly white flowers on 20-inch scapes are early - mid to late June into much of July on this most handsome, slow grower. In 1988 Hosta tokudama 'Aureonebulosa' won the Alex J. Summers Award, deservedly so, after its introduction from F. Maekawa in 1940 making this an heirloom. Solid blue Tokudama was thought to be a species and had been originally collected from Japanese gardens. However there have been no wild populations ever found. It was finally dubbed a cultivar in 1991 by Schmid. What had been Hosta tokudama 'Aureonebulosa' now appears as Hosta 'Tokudama 'Aureonebulosa'.

Genus Overview: Hosta

Common Name: Hosta


Hosta. Hosta is a staple for shade gardeners. Hostas prefer open to dappled shade conditions. Early morning or late day sun is generally acceptable. The exception to the rule (and it seems in the plant world there is always at least one exception to the rule!) is Hosta plantaginea which requires more sun for flowering to occur. Hostas can fill a midsummer’s day dream with spikes of lavender, purple and white blossoms, some fragrant. There are growers and collectors who dislike hosta flowers though I find this a curious affectation; I am personally grateful for perennials of easy disposition that so readily bloom, carefree, adorning and lighting the woodland garden during a period that might otherwise be a flowerless void. Flower your garden! Dig in. Have fun. Hostas prefer fertile draining soil with many demonstrating moderate drought tolerance once established. Many of the following are offered as pot-grown divisions of our stock plants. Others are from tissue culture. For Hosta there are several different size charts available that can be found on line with some digging. Of course, some plants straddle these arbitrary determinations. We are using the following classification...

Mature Heights:

Miniature: less than 6 inches

Small: 6 - 12 inches

Medium: 12 - 18 inches

Large: 18 - 24 inches
