Hosta Blue Ivory
One of the best we’ve seen
Wandering through a Hosta garden we were overwhelmed by the standout Blue Ivory Hosta. Blue Ivory Hosta’s beautiful blue cupped leaves highlighted with creamy white edges create magnificent mounds of stunning color. As the temperature warms the margins brighten to white and the center deepens. Lavender flowers appear in midsummer.
Hosta 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 ideal ground covers. Blue Ivory Hosta mixes well with other perennials, and looks fantastic in pots.
Growing instructions: Hosta are low maintenance plants that if given adequate moisture, can grow undisturbed for many years. Plant Hosta in shade to part shade locations in soil that has been amended with organic matter. Give consistent moisture. Although they are tough plants that can withstand periods of drought, for best results keep well watered during dry spells. Fertilize in spring to early summer. Do not fertilizer after midsummer. Cut back spent foliage in late fall and remove. Damaging pests such as snails and slugs like to lay their eggs in the old leaves. Cutting back foliage in fall prevents future spring problems.
