Hosta sieboldiana 'Elegans'

Plantain Lily, Funkia

These are the most dramatic and versatile of all foliage herb perennials. Their leaves are green to yellow to blue-green in color and range from finger-length to large frisbee in size. There are approximately 36 clump-forming species with more than 1000 cultivars and hybrids. Extremely hardy and long-lived, most thrive in shade. However, several varieties grow in full sun except in hot summer climates. Their roots compete against well-established plants. Easily transplanted and divided, Hosta's only weaknesses are slugs and snails in mild winter climates.
Hosta sieboldiana, Plantain Lily, Funkia
A real show-stopper with its large blue-gray, deeply veined and crinkled white-margined leaves and lavender flowers. Unfortunately, it grows slowly.
