Hosta 'Island Breeze'
New from Proven Winners! Wide, dark green margins stand in sharp contrast to the bright yellow centers in early spring. As summer approaches, the centers become more chartreuse when plants are grown in heavier shade or lighter yellow if they are grown in more sun. Showy red speckled stem petioles bleed up into the leaves.
Dark lavender flowers appear on reddish green scapes in midsummer.
Hardy in zones 3-9. Grows to 18" tall and wide.
Plant in dappled light or partial sun. Hostas also make excellent potted plants for shady patios.
Hostas are exceedingly popular perennials in today's gardens due to their versatility in the landscape. Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. Hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust, etc.
Shipped with full roots in one gallon pot, plants will be a nice beefy size the first growing season.
This premium hosta variety is part of a group of the finest hostas available today. To be considered a premium hosta, plants must perform superbly in many zones. They must also exhibit exemplary garden presence and performance, have a long season of appeal in the landscape, have leaves of good substance, and demonstrate a greater resistance to common garden pests.
