Hosta 'Cool As A Cucumber'

Plantain Lily

Long tapered leaves have rich green margins that flare into the clean white centers. With an upright habit and nicely arching leaves plants form a bright fountain in the shade garden. Lavender blooms in June.

Hostas prefer shade, will grow in ordinary garden soil and withstand drought, but they are most beautiful when provided with ample moisture and organic matter. Can tolerate clay soil.
