Botanical Name

HOSTA 'Devon Green'

Plant Common Name

Devon Green Plantain Lily, Hosta, Plantain Lily

General Description

Hostas are herbaceous perennials grown for their leaves, mounding habit, toughness and tolerance for shade. The striking ‘Devon Green’ is a medium-sized hosta that forms upright clumps of overlapping lance-shaped leaves that are glossy, cupped, ribbed, thick and an unusually dark green. Lavender striped tubular flowers appear on tall stems held above the foliage in late summer.

Like most hostas, ‘Devon Green’ grows best in full to partial shade and tolerates a wide range of well-drained soils. It has average water needs and prefers even moisture. Use ‘Devon Green’ as a dark, shiny accent and for contrast of texture and silhouette in shaded perennial gardens and woodlands, or planted en masse as an herbaceous groundcover.
