Hosta 'Diamonds are Forever'

Hosta

Plant Type: Perennial
MORNING sun/AFTERNOON shade to FULL shade

‘Diamonds are Forever’ is a showy new sport that has green leaves with crisp white margins. The sharply contrasting variegation can be spotted from quite a distance and is even more eye-catching in late summer when the purple, bell-shaped flowers appear on 20-24" scapes. If you’re a fan of the “Tiara” series of hostas, you know they are vigorous growers in the garden, forming a flattish mound of petite leaves. They are excellent for edging a shade border

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.
