Hosta hybrid Autumn Frost / Plantain Lily


    Hosta hybrid Autumn Frost is a stunning perennial plant that is highly prized by gardeners for its striking variegated foliage and ease of cultivation. This plant is a cross between Hosta plantaginea and Hosta 'Dorset Blue', resulting in a unique and beautiful cultivar.

    The foliage of Hosta hybrid Autumn Frost is the main attraction. The leaves are large, heart-shaped, and have a glossy texture. The coloration of the leaves is truly exquisite, with a dark green margin that surrounds a creamy white center. The white center is splashed with irregular patches of blue-green, giving the leaves a watercolor-like appearance. The overall effect is breathtaking, and the foliage remains attractive from spring through fall.

    Hosta hybrid Autumn Frost is a medium-sized plant that typically grows to be around 16 inches tall and 36 inches wide. It has a mounded habit and forms a dense clump of foliage, making it an excellent choice for edging a border, grouping in a bed, or as a focal point in a container garden.

    In mid-summer, Hosta hybrid Autumn Frost produces tall scapes that rise above the foliage and bear clusters of lavender flowers. The flowers are a lovely accent to the foliage but are not the main attraction of this plant.

    Hosta hybrid Autumn Frost is a low-maintenance plant that is easy to grow and care for. It prefers partial shade but can tolerate full sun if the soil is consistently moist. It also thrives in moist, well-drained soil, but can tolerate some dryness once established. This plant is also tolerant of a wide range of soil types and pH levels.

    Overall, Hosta hybrid Autumn Frost is a must-have plant for any shade garden. Its exquisite foliage is sure to be a standout, and its ease of cultivation makes it a great choice for both novice and experienced gardeners alike.
