Hosta Abiqua Drinking Gourd

Hosta Abiqua Drinking Gourd

Bring fascinating form and rich color to your shade garden with Abiqua Drinking Gourd. Deeply cupped, up to 3″ deep, blue green leaves are thick and heavily corrugated. In early summer white flowers on 22″ scapes appear just above the foliage. Hostas are excellent perennials for shade that require minimal care. They are lovely massed in woodland settings or used as specimens. With their weed smothering foliage, they make idea ground covers. Although they are tough plants that can withstand periods of drought, for best results keep well watered during dry spells.
