Wishing Well Hosta
The Best Blue for Part Sun!
Just under 2 feet tall and just over 3 feet wide, this beautifully mounding Hosta sets leaves up to 11 inches long and 9 inches wide, deeply corrugated even from a young age. Slightly twisted and wavy, the foliage is nicely cupped, particularly in heavier shade, and keeps both its texture and its blue-green tones in partial sun. Stunning!
In midsummer, lavender blooms on 26- to 29-inch stems top the foliage, attracting butterflies to the shade, but the real attraction is the amazing foliage. No more "going green" when the weather heats up or the sun becomes stronger! No more flattening out of cupped, rippled leaves! 'Wishing Well' stays true!
Don Dean introduced this fine cultivar, and we heartily recommend it for containers, the border, and the woodland garden. Such blue hues are hard to find in the Hosta family, and such handsome texture a rarity indeed! You will love this Hosta. Zones 3-9.
