Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
HOSTA 'Snow Cap'
Hosta, Plantain Lily, Snow Cap Plantain Lily
Hostas are mound-forming herbaceous perennials grown mostly for their attractive foliage. The pretty variegated ‘Snow Cap’ is a medium to large hosta that forms neat clumps. Its large, substantial, heart-shaped leaves are slightly puckered and cupped. They are blue-green in color accented with wide, white, irregularly-shaped margins. White funnel-shaped flowers appear on tall stems held above the foliage in late summer.
Overall, this hosta grows best in full to partial shade and tolerates a wide range of well-drained soil types. Hostas have average water needs, but prefer even moisture. In hot and dry conditions most develop dry leaf edges and tips. Pests are also a problem. Slugs and snails favor Hosta leaves and riddle them with holes, and deer will feast on them if given the chance. Hosta are best used in shaded perennial gardens or can be massed as an herbaceous groundcover.
