Description

The Great Expectations Hosta lives up to its name. It is a mounding perennial that grows a bit slower that other hostas, but is well worth the wait.

The broad variegated leaves transition from a light color, color depending on the season, to dark blue-green tips. The ever-changing center of the broad leaves change from light mint green all the way to a creamy yellow. Whatever the color variation may be, the Great Expectations hosta will always delight your eyes with green painted streaks. During the midsummer, long stems shoot from the center of the mounding hosta that are adorned with white bell shaped flowers.

How To Care

Hostas thrive in full to part shade and are adaptable to most soils and pH levels. Hostas go dormant in in late fall or winter, but come back year after year. Dead foliage may be removed any time after your plant goes dormant. Water your newly planted Hosta deeply a couple times per week to encourage the roots to grow properly. Once established hostas are drought tolerant however they will perform best with a moist soil. This Hosta is extremely low maintenance. Fertilize with our balanced, slow release fertilizer in spring for best growth.

Landscape Ideas

Hostas are great in just about any shady spot.  The large leaves of this hardy plant are perfect for hiding eyesores in your yard and home.  Mask the ugly legginess of older shrubs with the Great Expectations Hosta.  Fill in spots where other plants won't grow like around the base of a shade tree. The Great Expectations Hosta is a great way to add color and unique texture and depth to your landscape.  Hostas look phenomenal in mass plantings.  Plant Hostas in containers to enjoy them on your porch or covered patio or deck. Our Big Daddy Hosta is also a great option.
