Plant of the Day
Monday 11 July 2016

Hosta sieboldiana ‘Frances Williams’ (giant blue hosta) is an herbaceous perennial forming large clumps of puckered, broad, blue-grey leaves edged with a yellow growing up to 30cm in length. In summer lilac white, bell-shaped flowers are produced above the foliage. In my garden these are a favourite food of slugs and snails! Another Hosta cultivar has been planted to make the spiral planting design (lower right image).
