Hostas or Plantain Lilies are a stately group of plants with structurally attractive foliage and white to lavender flowers, especially for those moist places in part to full shade.  They will thrive in damp to dry soil, in full shade to full sun.  In full sun they will have bigger and better flowers whilst in the full shade they will have less flowers but will get substantially taller and have broader leaves.  They will require summer moisture if they are in full sun.   Mulch in sun or shade for best results and feed in spring with Osmocote Slow Release.


‘Blue Cadet’ is one of the better blues with nice lavender flowers.  Small grower to 30cm with pointed foliage.  It is a dwarf form of  Hosta ‘Tokudama’  With its blue foliage it is more tolerant of snails and performs best in dappled light.

 ‘Blue Cadet’ is part of the Larkman Plants Collection.  Plants from around the world to enhance your garden.  There are several Hostas in the range, collect them all for an eye catching display.  Hostas are susceptible to snail attack so place eggshells or a good, petsafe, snail bait around them especially in early spring as the new plants emerge.
