Hosta Neptune

Neptune 24"T X 47"W

$15.00

Very unusual narrow wedge-shaped leaves are bright waxy blue and they hold their color well. As the season progresses they turn more blue-green. The heavily rippled leaves are of good substance. This hosta has a lovely cascading form that is displayed to best effect when planted on a ledge or in a container. Lavender flowers are produced on arching scapes in late summer to early fall.

Cold Hardiness: U.S.D.A. Zones 3 to 9 - Hostas require a minimum of 40 days of around 40 degrees farenheit. Hosta plants tend to grow larger in the North. In the South you may need to be more selective in the varieties of hostas that you choose.
Light Requirements: Partial sun, filtered shade, morning sun. - Most hostas will tolerate some sun if the soil is kept reasonably moist. Morning sun or filtered sun is the best for hostas but avoid mid-day sun as it will burn the leaves.
Water Requirements: Keep soil constantly moist avoiding any areas where water may puddle
Fertilizer Requirements: In early Spring apply a light amount of slow-release fertilizer. Avoid getting any fertilizer on the leaves.

    Stunning!

    Purchased several varieties of hostas...I LOVE the care in packaging...no waste! I have also purchased from many companies....PFG is by far my favorite! The Neptune may just be my favorite so far. I love the shape and the wavy edges...has the look of 'seaweed'!

    Awesome Hostas

    My yard is full of trees creating a shade canopy. I can't grow too many flowering shrubs or plants. So, I have chosen to fill my yard with as many different hostas's as I can. This just adds to that array.
