Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
HOSTA 'Color Glory'
Color Glory Plantain Lily, Hosta, Plantain Lily
Hostas need shade, right? Not always. The yellow-leaved ‘Color Glory’ and other hostas with yellow leaves tend to need some sun to show their most brilliant color. An herbaceous perennial, ‘Color Glory’ forms mounds of yellow to chartreuse leaves that have margins streaked in cream, green and blue-green. The leaves are cupped, broadly oval to heart-shaped, of heavy texture and corrugated like cardboard. White flowers are bell to funnel-shaped and appear on tall, leafless stems above the foliage in mid summer. The plants are vigorous and form cascading mounds.
Like other hostas, ‘Color Glory’ grows best in full to partial shade and tolerates a wide range of well-drained soils. It needs at least some morning sun to maintain good leaf color. It has average water needs and prefers even moisture. Use ‘Color Glory’ for contrasts of color and texture in shaded perennial gardens and woodlands, or planted en masse as an herbaceous groundcover.
