Hostas or Plantain Lilies are a stately group of plants with structurally attractive foliage and lavender flowers, especially for those moist places in part to full shade.  In full sun they will have bigger and better flowers whilst in the full shade they will have fewer flowers but will get substantially taller and have broader leaves.  They will require summer moisture if they are in full sun.   Mulch in sun or shade for best results and feed in spring with Osmocote Slow Release.


‘Minuteman’ is a beautiful plant with blue green foliage, each having a wide, white margin.  It is a sport of the best white edged Hosta, ‘Patriot’ which is a little larger and has green leaves.  ‘Minuteman’ has lavender flowers and prefers part to full shade in a damp to moist soil.


‘Minuteman’ is part of the Larkman Plants Collection.  Plants from around the world to enhance your garden.  There are several Hostas in the range, collect them all for an eye catching display.  Hostas are susceptible to snail attack so place eggshells or a good, petsafe,  snail bait around them especially in early spring as the new plants emerge.
