Hosta sieboldiana ‘Elegans’
short-cluster plantain lily, giant blue hosta
Enormous, blue-foliaged hostas with heavily puckered and textured leaves are considered amongst the most desirable plants for drama and impact in the woodland garden.
Nowadays more correctly named Hosta sieboldiana var elegans, this was one of the first such Hostas introduced into our gardens and, arguably, it has never been bettered.
Care Size & Guidance
Plant in a sheltered spot, in part shade away from dry winds and afternoon sun.
In general, Hostas are a magnet for slugs, however this cultivar is said to be resistant to slugs.
Larger clumps of Hostas can be divided in spring for propagation.
