Similar to 'Grand Master' in looks, 'Christmas Tree' has heart-shaped leaves that have irregular white margins and are lightly streaked with grey and green at the edges. In mid-summer, it produces lavender, bell-shaped flowers which are followed by aubergine seed pods. Hostas benefit from plenty of organic matter being added to the soil before planting. They also enjoy being mulched in spring and autumn to help retain moisture in the soil. 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.
