Hosta 'Paradigm'

Common Name: Hosta

  • Formerly known as 'Abiqua Paradigm'; a sport of 'Abiqua Recluse'
  • Beautiful gold leaves with streaked, blue-green margins; variegation pattern intensifies later in the spring
  • Leaves are of good substance and corrugated, making them slug-resistant

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.
