Plant Common Name

Hosta, Jade Cascade Plantain Lily, Plantain Lily

General Description

Hostas are herbaceous perennials grown for their toughness, tolerance for shade, mounding habit and leaves. This one, ‘Jade Cascade,’ is a large hosta that forms cascading mounds of extremely long, lance-shaped leaves that taper to a point and are slightly ruffled. They are green, glossy and deeply pleated. White bell-to-funnel-shaped flowers appear on leafless stems held above the foliage in early summer.

Like most hostas, ‘Jade Cascade’ grows best in full to partial shade and tolerates a wide range of fertile well-drained soils. It prefers average, even moisture. Use ‘Jade Cascade for remarkable contrasts of size and texture in shaded perennial gardens and woodlands, or massed under large trees as a groundcover.
