Hosta American Hero

Hosta American Hero

Named to honor the American soldier, this tough durable Hosta reliably displays strong, bold variegation. Leaves have a wide, dark green margin and a white center that is speckled with green. Its thick foliage grows very close together, somewhat twisting the leaves. Lavender flowers are held above the foliage in midsummer. A portion of the sale of each American Hero is donated to Project EverGreen, a program that supports American military families. 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.
