Hosta Emerald Charger

A vigorous grower with dark green, shiny leaves with yellow in the center. Its leaves are slightly twisted, giving it a unique look. Fragrant, lavender blossoms in the shape of bells appear in late summer. Its mature leaves measure 9″ long, and clumps grow very large, 20″ tall and 48″ 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.
