Hosta 'White Feather'
- Position: full sun to partial shade
- Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
- Flowering period: summer
- Flower colour: lavender
- Hardiness: fully hardy
A striking new Hosta, the large leaves emerge creamy white in late spring, but soon after green streaks develop and these gradually spread until the whole leaf has turned a lush shade of green. Primarily grown for this colourful foliage, the sprays of lavender flowers which appear from midsummer are an added bonus. A relatively compact plant, it looks great at the front of the border, and also makes a great specimen for a pot.
- Garden care:Surround plants with a ring of crushed eggshells to offer protection from slug damage. Lift and divide over-large clumps every 2-3 years.
