Hosta sieboldiana 'Blue Angel'

The largest of the blue 'Plantain Lily', this slow growing, hardy plant forms large clumps of glaucous grey-blue leaves that form the perfect backdrop to the clusters of tall, bell-shaped flowers. Perfect for patio pots.

Plant Care

Keep well watered until firmly established. Plant into any average garden soil, enjoys damp but not wet areas. Trim to size in spring and with a good general fertiliser every two weeks in the flowering season.

Planting Instructions

Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
