This variety has ribbed leaves with a chalky-blue colour that persists throughout the growing season. The leaves are slightly cupped and densely formed, providing an excellent amount of groundcover. They are great plants to use in shade gardens and maintain their colours throughout the season.
The light-lavender to white, trumpet-shaped flowers have a pleasant scent and form on the top of a raceme or stalk that comes from the center of the plant.
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.
They are relatively disease-free. However, slugs and snails are pests that are attracted to the 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.
