HOSTA 'Anne'

Image of Hosta 'Anne'

Family

Liliaceae

Botanical Name

HOSTA 'Anne'

Plant Common Name

Anne Plantian Lily, Hosta, Plantain Lily

General Description

An herbaceous perennial grown mostly for its attractive leaves and symmetrical habit, 'Anne' is a medium-to-large hosta that makes an open clump of upright, leaning and horizontal leaves. The leaves are thick, cupped, glossy and round to heart-shaped with dark-green centers and wide, irregular, yellow margins. Lavender and purple-striped tubular flowers appear on tall leafless stems held above the leaves in the late summer.

Overall, this hosta grows best in full to partial shade and tolerates a wide range of fertile well-drained soils. It has average water needs, and prefers even moisture. Use it for contrasts of color and form in shaded perennial gardens or mass several plants together for an herbaceous groundcover
