Hosta 'Cool as a Cucumber'

Hosta

Plant Type: Perennial

Long, tapered, pointed leaves have bright green margins with a clear white center. Its foliage is notably upright in youth, but quickly develops into a gracefully arching mound.

In early summer, creamy white scapes carry light 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.
