HOSS-tah
Genus:  Hosta
This large and vigorous mounding hosta reaches 20 to 24 inches tall and 36 to 42 inches wide. Heart-shaped, cupped, puckered, pale green leaves provide interesting and attractive texture. Bell-shaped, grayish white flowers are borne on 28-inch-long scapes from mid-July through early August.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Easy to grow and adaptable. Excellent edging and massing plant.
Care:  Grow in moist but well-drained, fertile soil. Shade tolerant. Tolerates drought, but a summer mulch is beneficial. Prefers only four to five hours of morning light but will grow in full sun.
Propagation:  Divide plants in late summer or early spring.
Problems:  Slugs and snails. In containers, watch for vine weevil. Also viruses and foliar nematodes.
