Hosta ‘Wiggles and Squiggles’
Common Name: Hosta, wiggles and squiggles hosta, plantain lily
A unique looking hosta that lives up to its fun name! Bright yellow leaves are very long and thin and notable for their incredibly wavy margins. It forms a low, wide habit that really highlights the "wiggly" edges.
Leaves will be more chartreuse green in more shade: for best yellow colour, plant in a site with morning sun and afternoon shade. Lavender flowers.
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.
