My Recommendations

Hosta
Inniswood

Hosta Inniswood

This truly outstanding cultivar boasts large, rounded, golden foliage with a deep green edge in an  outstanding variegated pattern. As a mature plant ‘Inniswood’ reaches a height of approximately 24 inches and a spread of 4 feet in width. (Mine is only 6 inches in height and 15 inches wide after 3 years!) Large lavender flowers, on 30 inch scapes, appear in late spring. ‘Inniswood’ also has the distinction of being slug resistant. PPH

Hosta
 Great
Expectations

Hosta Great Expectations

Great Expectations plantain lily
This Hosta originated as a mutation of sieboldiana ‘Elegans’. The deep blue leaves have an unusual bold centre variegation of golden-yellow, later changing to creamy-white. Near-white flowers in June. Needs some sun for best colouration. Slow grower. A mature ‘Great Expectations’ gets to a height of 22 inches and a width of 48 inches. (Mine is only 10 inches tall and 18 inches wide and I’ve had it for 10 years! The gas man stepping on it did not help!)
