    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 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.

    We've chosen to pair it here with our terracotta flared rim pot (Ø40cm x H40cm), which works especially well with foliage spilling out over the edge. Hand thrown in Turkey using local clay, it will age in time as salts leach to the surface to develop a characterful patina.

  • Garden care:Surround plants with a ring of crushed eggshells to offer protection from slug damage.
Please note: Ø30cm saucer shown is sold separately. To aid drainage and improve frost protection, we recommend using pot feet or a saucer to raise the pot off the ground.
