The “Wide Brim” is a popular choice among hostas because of its large creamy yellow to white colored border along each leaf’s edge. In the height of mid-summer, pale lavender-coloured flowers reach out along a central raceme during blooming. They start out as oblong, oval shapes and spring open into a beautiful bell in bunches of a couple dozen on each raceme.
These plants grow from a central clump and the leaves spread out to provide a dense, shaded groundcover. Because of this, they are very good to use in border areas to control weed growth.
Hostas can be divided every two to four years in order to thin or transplant. Dividing the plants helps to encourage more vigorous growth and allows the plants an appropriate amount of space to fully develop.
In addition, they are extremely hardy and tolerate harsh winter temperatures of the UK and the rest of Europe. At the end of each season or the beginning of the next, make sure to remove dead foliage.
They are relatively disease-free. However, slugs and snails are pests that are attracted to these plants and also appreciate the groundcover hostas offer. A suggested organic method to deal with these pests, is to this is spray a nematoid-filled solution on the soil around the hostas. These worm-like creatures will organically dispose of these pests.
