Rhino Hide PP23665 20" Tall X 30" Wide

$18.00

This is one large hosta that really has a "wow" factor! The leaves on this tough unusual hosta have a texture that reminds you of a rhino's hide. A hosta that has very heavy substance and slug resistant.  The cupped and puckered leaves have a wide, blue margin and a narrow, light green center that brightens to yellow as the season progresses. Plant forms a medium to large sized clump in the landscape.  White flowers top the scapes in early to midsummer. This tough hosta shows greater sun tolerance than many other hostas, but partial shade is still best, especially in the South.

Fertilizer Requirements: In early Spring apply a light amount of slow-release fertilizer. Avoid getting any fertilizer on the leaves.
