Hosta 'First Frost'

Common Name: Hosta

  • A sport of 'Halcyon' with the same intense blue-green leaf center
  • Emerges with a gold margin early in the spring, then changes to pure white later in the season
  • The leaves hold up well in the garden all season long until the "first frost"
  • Light lavender flowers appear on 28" scapes in midsummer

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.
