General Culture:
Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Tolerant of a wide range of soil conditions. Does best in rich, moist, organic soils in light, sun-dappled shade.
Noteworthy Characteristics:
Hosta undulata ‘Variegata’ are mounding plants to 15-22” tall featuring narrow oval to elliptic wavy-margined green leaves (to 7” long) with irregular creamy white center stripes.
Slugs and snails are attracted to the foliage, chewing jagged holes in the leaves, and if left unchecked, can cause serious damage over a fairly short period of time. Leaf spots and crown rot are less frequent problems. Otherwise, hostas are virtually pest-free and are considered ideal low-maintenance garden perennials.
A mainstay of the shade garden. This medium hosta can be mixed with other perennials, massed or used as a specimen in the border or woodland garden.
