DescriptionPerfect For Your Shade Garden
When it comes to listing the best plants for shade, hosta has to be at the top! America's most popular perennial, the hardy hosta is known for its broad, textured foliage that comes in hundreds of colour combinations. Versatile and easygoing, hostas thrive in planting zones 3-9, require little care and fit in just about anywhere—including under a tree, in containers or along a wooded path. Their ample leaves are perfect for hiding withering bulb foliage in late spring, and their tall flower scapes in mid to late summer provide added dimension and colour. Our Exotic Colour Hosta Collection offers hosta lovers an exciting alternative to ordinary hosta hues—with bold colour combinations and incredible shapes and textures.
The Exotic Colour Hosta Collection includes 1 each of the following:
Olive Bailey Langdon: Large, round leaves look like giant lily pads floating above the garden. This heavily corrugated, giant variety is rich blue-green with wide, chartreuse margins. Bell-shaped blooms are nearly white. Foliage grows to 26-30" with 40" flower scapes.
Brim Cup: Heart-shaped, cupped leaves have mid green middles and a prominent creamy lime margin that makes it pop against surrounding foliage and flowers in the border. Lavender flowers appear in midsummer. Compact foliage grows to 12-14" with 20" flower scapes.
Orange Marmalade: Quite a chameleon! Leaves emerge all green and then develop a bright orange-yellow centre. Later in the season, the leaf centres change again— this time fading to parchment white. Foliage grows to 17" with 26" flower scapes.
Rainbow's End: Incredibly thick, rounded leaves are heavily variegated in chartreuse and dark green tones. Leaf centres brighten to creamy white in summer, when showy red scapes will emerge carrying dark lavender flowers. Compact foliage grows to 10-12" with 16-19" flower scapes.
Enterprise: Unique "three-toned" variety features a bold white centre surrounded by yellow-green highlights and mid green margins. Lavender flowers in midsummer add even more interest and a fourth colour to the mix. Foliage grows to 18-20" with 28" flower scapes.
