Hosta ‘High Society’
Common Name: Hosta, high society hosta, plantain lil
’High Society’ is a small sized hosta great for containers or the front of the border. This hosta is a stunning sport of 'June' with distinctly wider, blue margins. The yellow centre brightens to parchment by midsummer. Pale lavender flowers open just above the mound of foliage in late summer.
Small and slow growing, but worth the wait; makes a fantastic specimen!
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.
