Hosta 'Liberty'

Plant details

While hostas produce flowers, they are mostly grown for their bold foliage. These full hardy plants can be grown under deep-rooted trees as ground cover, in borders, or even near water. They grow best in moist but well-drained soil and most prefer shade with shelter from cold winds. For the lushest displays, feed with a balanced fertiliser between March and June. Do not feed after this period or you will encourage the sort of sappy growth that slugs adore! To avoid the leaves looking like a piece of lace, take measures against slugs and snails, such as beer traps. Hosta 'Liberty' produces green leaves with broad yellow margins.
