Hosta Curly Fries

2016 Hosta Of The Year

The adorable miniature Hosta Curly Fries wins hearts with its arching, wiggly clump of extremely rippled narrow leaves. Its bright chartreuse foliage will become speckled with red spots as it matures. Curly Fries makes a fantastic addition to containers and gardens. For a superb combination mix it up with bight blue Hostas. They make a stunning show especially when planted together in containers or near the front of the border. Lavender flowers top the petite mounds in midsummer. Position this Hosta where it will receive morning sun, as its chartreuse foliage will be brightest there. It grows 6″ tall and 16″ 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.
