Hosta ‘Warwick Comet’
Common Name: Hosta, warwick comet hosta, plantain lily
A very unique hosta with vividly contrasting leaves, ‘Warwick Comet’ hostas have centers of gold turning to creamy white with wide dark green margins. Foliage is cupped slightly, corrugated and thick with pale lavender flowers on 24" scapes in early summer.
The sharp and abrupt colour change from gold to green is exceptional. Leaves look like round spoons just waiting to collect the rain. Hosta 'Warwick Comet' is a slow grower but needs to be in every hosta collection!
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.
