  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: pale lilac flowers appear in August and last for several weeks
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Almost exclusively shade-lovers, hostas are principally grown for their valuable foliage detail over the spring and summer months. Their planting versatility enables use as ground cover in a border, or as an understorey to shrubby plantings, or equally they make handsome specimens to grace a garden planter. Hosta 'Devon Green' is a chance sport of Hosta 'Halcyon', forming dense, medium sized hummocks of heart-shaped leaves. Being dark in colour, their highly glossy surface throws into relief the distinct mid rib veining. Lily-like flowers of pale lilac appear in high summer.

  • Garden care: Surround plants with a ring of crushed eggshells to offer protection from slug damage.
