HOSTA, Fragrant Blue ANGEL (Bareroot PLANT) Perennial
Hosta is recommended for the following landscape applications;
- Mass Planting
- Border Edging
- General Garden Use
- Hosta 'Fragrant Blue' is a medium sized hosta with chalky blue leaves that hold the blue color due to the tendency of producing new foliage throughout the growing season.
- Nice blue leaves have some corrugation and a gentle waviness to the margin.
- This is one of our favorite blue hostas for its vigor and tendency to hold the blue late into the season.
- Although it holds the blue color well this hosta will be blue-green to green by late summer especially if grown in some direct sunlight.
- Certainly has the ability to reach the listed size but we have seen this hosta stay around 15"T x 30"W in less than desirable conditions.
- Barely fragrant light lavender flowers in late summer.
Christmas Tree Hosta features dainty spikes of white trumpet-shaped flowers rising above the foliage in mid summer. Its attractive large textured round leaves remain forest green in color with distinctive creamy white edges throughout the season. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.
Christmas Tree Hosta is a dense herbaceous perennial with tall flower stalks held atop a low mound of foliage. Its medium texture blends into the garden, but can always be balanced by a couple of finer or coarser plants for an effective composition.
This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. Gardeners should be aware of the following characteristic(s) that may warrant special consideration
Planting & Growing
Christmas Tree Hosta will grow to be about 18 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 3 feet. When grown in masses or used as a bedding plant, individual plants should be spaced approximately 30 inches apart. Its foliage tends to remain dense right to the ground, not requiring facer plants in front. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years.
This plant does best in partial shade to shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid. It can be propagated by division; however, as a cultivated variety, be aware that it may be subject to certain restrictions or prohibitions on propagation.
Will not do business with them again, unless they send reminder of my other. I paid for 5 blue angel hosta and only received 4!!
