Description

Family Asparagaceae
Originating from Korea, Japan.

  • Arrestingly large and textured foliage with striking variegetion forming dense carpets.
  • Spikes of lilac slightly scented flowers appear in summer, held well above the foliage.
  • A hardy and strong growing Hosta, thriving in moist dappled shade.

Wow! The crimped, puckered, undulating large fleshy leaves with stunning variegation are enough to stop you in your tracks. The rich green colour at the base and centre of the leaf extends between curved veining, sometimes with lighter green brushstrokes of intermediate markings, giving way to the bright creamy white main colour of the leaf. Gracefully arching leaves make a large, slowly spreading clump,

The chunky flower spike shoots emerge in early summer and mature into form pendulous bunches of many large tubular lilac, scented blooms. The individual flowers develop in succession on each spike and as the clump matures it produces many flower spikes, making a floral display that can last for over a month.

Making a stunning spread of stikingly marked foliage, this large leaved exotic looking hosta is a perfect classy ground cover for Jungle, woodland and oriental style gardens, making eye-catching carpets with enough texture to warrant viewing close up. Planted with Musa lasiocarpa, Ensete ventricosum ‘Maurellii, or dark leaved Cannas like ‘Russian Red’ or ‘Intrigue’ it can create a lush, exotic backdrop. Around dwarf growing oriental style conifers like Pinus strobus ‘Minima’ or Pinus heldrechii ‘Malink’ , Abies pinsapo ‘Fastigiata’, Acer palmatum ‘Atropurpuream’, Hosta ‘Wide brim’ has the strucural qualities to underpin minimal, restrained oriental style compositions.

Easy to grow in all but alkaline thin poor soils, best moist, sandy or humus rich, dappled shady woodland conditions.
