Hosta Chain Lightning

A lovely Hosta whose thick, bumpy leaves emerge blue in spring with a gold center. As the season progresses leaves turn green and chartreuse with a white center. Pale lavender flowers appear in summer. A strong grower, it matures to 16″ tall and 30″ wide. 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.
