Hosta hybrid El Nino / Plantain Lily


    Hosta hybrid El Nino is a stunning and eye-catching perennial plant that is highly prized by gardeners for its unique and attractive foliage. This plant is a hybrid of Hosta 'Salute' and Hosta 'Halcyon', resulting in a cultivar with a distinctive color and pattern.

    The leaves of Hosta hybrid El Nino are medium-sized, oval-shaped, and have a thick substance with a glossy surface. The foliage is a beautiful shade of blue-gray with irregular cream-colored margins that give it a striking variegation. As the plant matures, the blue-gray color intensifies, making it an excellent choice for adding color and interest to shady areas of the garden.

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

    Hosta hybrid El Nino 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 El Nino is an excellent choice for any shade garden, providing a unique and attractive display of blue-gray foliage with cream-colored margins that are sure to stand out. Its medium size and ease of cultivation make it a great choice for both novice and experienced gardeners alike.
