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 'Frances Williams' bears thick, distinctively puckered, grey-green leaves suffused with a darker metallic colour, with wide, irregular green-yellow margins. Grey-white flowers on long stalks from early summer.
For best results, grow in partial shade, ideally with some morning sun to bring out the colour of the leaves. Hosta 'Frances Williams' thrives in rich, moist soil with plenty of organic matter added to the soil before planting. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
