Hostas or Plantain Lilies are a stately group of plants with structurally attractive foliage and white to lavender flowers, especially for those moist places in part to full shade.  They will thrive in damp to dry soil, in full shade to full sun.  In full sun they will have bigger and better flowers whilst in the full shade they will have less 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.


‘Undulata’ is an unstable variety with variation in the leaves of each plant and variation from year to year.  This is a shame as it is one of the most beautiful varieties when it is true to form.  The white changes from being dominant at the start of spring to being a mottled and streaked leaf with green borders.  To maintain the best appearance the plant should be divided every three to four years and any straight green progeny discarded.   It is a small t Hosta reaching about 35cm in height and 40cm in width.  The pure green version is called Hosta ‘Undulata Erromena’


‘Undulata’ 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.
