The heavily ruffled pie crust edges on bright blue foliage make Neptune Hosta an excellent specimen in the garden. The long wedge shaped leaves with a graceful weeping form look fabulous in the front of the garden, in containers or along retaining walls. Lavender flowers bloom on arching stems in summer.
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.
Plant in full shade to light shade in soil that has been amended with compost or other organic matter. Adding a starter fertilizer when planting will establish your plant fast. Keep well watered until established, when plant is setting up buds and blooming, and during dry spells.
