Hosta fortunei var. hyacinthina (Hyacinthine Plantain Lily) forms an attractive, dense mound of broadly ovate, slightly puckered, boldly-veined leaves, 8 in. long (20 cm), which emerge blue-green and mature to gray-green. The leaves are delicately edged with a fine creamy-white line. Racemes of funnel-shaped, lavender flowers appear in mid to late summer on slightly bending scapes, rising well above the foliage to 30 in. tall (75 cm). But the primary contribution of this hosta is its lovely foliage which brings some color to shady areas.

  • A part shade to full shade lover, it is best grown in light, sun-dappled shade in rich, moist, well-drained soils. Quite sun tolerant with adequate moisture, this plant is not fussy about soils and tolerates a wide range of conditions.

  • Watch for slugs and snails which could damage the attractive foliage.
  • Low-maintenance and forgiving perennial
  • Cut off the stems after blooming to encourage the plant's growth. Divide plants as needed in spring or fall.
