Now, one of the great hostas has been made even better. We are pleased to offer Hosta 'Earth Angel', a marvelous white-edged mutation of Hosta 'Blue Angel'. Each 5' wide clump is composed of thick, wide, pointed blue leaves, each surrounded by a 1" wide, creamy border (yellow in spring). Hosta 'Earth Angel' is the first giant blue hosta to have a border...stand up and cheer!

Maintenance:

Hosta 'Earth Angel' is essentially a maintenance free perennial. Once the plant has gone dormant in fall, you may wish to remove the old foliage, which helps tidy the garden. Old flower stalks may be removed after flowering, which we feel helps with clump appearance.

Growing Conditions:

Hosta always grow better in rich, moist soil. They thrive best in clay or amended clay soils, but amended sandy loam can be successful if additional compost or other organic nutrients are added. Dry soils are not problematic for a short time, but hostas will decline if the soil is kept dry over an extended period.

Light shade to a couple of hours of early morning sun are best. Dark shade will not result in a satisfactory plant.

Garden Value:

Hostas like 'Earth Angel' are great to brighten a woodland garden. Their bold texture makes a nice garden foil to more airy-textured perennials.

Natural Impacts:

Hosta flowers are always a great source of nectar for honeybees.
