#ProPlantTips For CareBlue Angel’s big blue-green leaves emerge in early spring and burst out of the ground, ready to sparkle in the morning sun! It has excellent slug resistance and no disease issues!
Hardy in USDA growing zones 3 through 9, these are very cold hardy perennials. Highly filtered or dappled sunlight is necessary for lush, healthy growth. The morning sun is tolerable and helps to intensify the leaf colors, but hot afternoon sun is usually deadly to Hostas!
Highly resistant to heat and humidity long as they’re given adequate shade and moisture, especially throughout the hottest part of the growing season. Tolerant of dry shade once established, these become incredibly resilient perennials!
Hostas grow best in moist, well-drained soils that are highly organic. Preferring a pH between 5.5 and 7.5. A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.
Low maintenance and easy care, there’s not much work for you! Once frosts arrive, Hosta is an herbaceous perennial that dies back to the ground and emerges again in early spring. Be sure to remove dead leaf matter from the area to prevent the spread of fungal issues and deter slugs.
