Perennial

Plantain Lilly (aka Hosta 'Halcyon Blue')

  • Location:

    I am originally from Northeast Asia, but have been enhanced by modern plant breeding.
  • Looks:

    My leaves look just like vinyl, and are blue/green with fine line tracing.
  • Height:

    I can reach 40cm high and spread to 90cm
  • Environment:

    I am useful for partly shaded areas of your garden or patio and enjoy a moist but well drained soil.
  • Flowers:

    I will occasionally flower. Make sure you give my blooms a sniff too.
  • Grooming:

    Clear away the decayed foliage at the end of the season to reduce risk of pests and disease.
  • Life Span:

    I can last for many years, just getting bigger and better.
  • Feeding:

    Moisture is one of my favourite things, so keep me well watered especially if I'm in a pot.
  • Fact:

    My grooved foliage makes me slightly less susceptible to slugs and snails, however you should still be on your guard.
