Stained Glass Hosta

My Stained Glass Hosta is starting to bloom! I didn't think it would this year, largely because I got the plants (two of them) quite late.

Here's what I've found out about this new addition to my garden:

  • They grow in zones 3 - 9.
  • They are perennial.
  • They bloom in late summer or fall (mine bloomed near the end of September).
  • The blossoms are very fragrant.
  • They are very sun tolerant, although prefer some shade.
  • They prefer rich and moist, but well drained soil.
  • They attract bees, birds and butterflies.
  • They divide easily, and root easily in water.
  • Here's how Wikipedia defines "hosta":
