Home Hosta ‘Hans’
Common Name: Hosta, Hans hosta, plantain lily
This sport of Hosta ‘Andrew’ has similar traits as its sibling, but with much more vigor, thanks to the green streaks that appear in late summer. ‘Hans’ has corrugated, puckered, and folded leaves, with ruffling at the base. Glaucous blue-green, rounded leaves have a showy wide, feathery, white center with green jetting between the center and margin. Pale lavender flowers appear in early to midsummer.
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.
