Wheee Hosta Plant
This 2011 introduction's name alone brings a smile to your face, and once you see its playfully ruffled foliage (evident even in the juvenile stage before vernalization!) and endearing colors, you'll be even more thrilled! The cream-colored margins of each of its light green leaves extends from the tip all the way down the petiole to the crown. The leaves are of excellent substance, making them undesirable to slugs. Midsummer brings light lavender flowers on 24" purple scapes, drawing in hummingbirds for even more beauty and charm.
Due to their versatility and ease of care, Hostas are extremely popular perennials for all gardeners, from those just starting out to those with years and years of experience. With subtle colors, tall, attractive flower scapes, and thick, broad leaves they add unique texture to a garden, performing a useful and beautiful function in landscape designs as nothing else can. Their lovely large foliage is perfect for covering up dying bulb foliage, and because of their tolerance of air pollution, they're a wonderful choice for city settings. Zones 3-9.
