Hosta 'Liberty'

Plant details

Hostas are popular, shade-loving plants, grown mainly for their beautiful foliage, although most varieties also have pretty, tubular flowers. Hosta leaves come in a wide range of shapes, colors, sizes, and textures, so there's a huge choice to suit you and your garden.

Hosta 'Liberty' has large green leaves with broad yellow margins. In summer lavender-blue flowers appear on tall stems.

For best results, grow in partial shade, ideally with some morning sun to bring out the colour of the leaves. Hosta 'Liberty' thrives in rich, moist soil with plenty of organic matter added to the soil before planting.
