Hosta ‘Guardian Angel’
Common Name: Hosta, guardian angel hosta, plantain lily
‘Guardian Angel’ is a a large hosta and a variety of 'Blue Angel.’
Large, thick, blue-green leaves display a white center in early spring. By late spring, a unique green misting appears over the white centre. Mature plants tend to keep their white centre longer in the spring. Dense clusters of light lavender flowers are produced in midsummer.
Makes a fantastic specimen plant, especially in spring when the variegation is most pronounced!
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.
