Large Blue Foliage Makes Huge Statement in the Garden
If you’ve ever driven by a well-treed lot with what looks like a perfect, parklike setting, we bet you’ve seen a few hostas mixed in here and there. Hostas have the ability to make a lawn look sophisticated, well maintained, and inviting. Even better, these delightful plants are low-maintenance.
Hostas are shade-loving perennial plants. Their mid-summer flowers really make them stand out, yet hostas provide multi-season interest. Hostas are dormant during winter and lose most of their leaves. New growth emerges in early spring.
Blue Angel Hosta is treasured for its vibrant and unique color. Extra-large, 16inch blue-green leaves adorn this luxurious plant. The uniquely textured leaves spring out in every direction creating a rounded appearance overall.
Blue Angel Hosta flowers are gorgeous! Whitish lavender flower blooms emerge in late spring to early summer and attract hummingbirds! The bell-shaped flowers shoot up past the lower foliage and add a delicate visual appeal. The bright flowers contrast beautifully against the darker foliage.
Landscaping Hostas in the Garden
Because hostas are shade loving, the possibilities are endless. Hostas look simply amazing in woodland gardens. Their elegant flare brings an upscale aesthetic to treed lots, making them look like a well-manicured park setting. Accent your hostas with nighttime solar lighting for dramatic effect!
Hostas are excellent for foundation planting too. They do well around patios, along walking paths, and entryways. Of course, these flowering shrubs can also be grown in pots.
Hostas are also a great choice for city living. Hostas naturally clean the air and help counteract air pollution. Hostas also make great soil anchors for erosion control on slopes or along embankments.
Blue Angel Hosta Care Information
Aphids and slugs can be fond of hostas and seek out new growth. Setting slug traps and mixing herbal teas or beer can help remedy this. It’s also a good idea to remove old or dead plant debris where pests can hide.
