HOSTA 'Sugar and Cream'
Hosta, Plantain Lily, Sugar and Cream Plantain Lily
Hostas are herbaceous perennials grown for their attractive leaves, tolerance for shade, toughness, and mounding habit. This one, ‘Sugar and Cream,' has rippled, ovoid leaves that are green with a narrow margin of creamy yellow to white. It is a large hosta and forms a mound of upright and spreading leaves. The flowers are pale lavender and fragrant, and borne on leafless stems above the leaves in late summer.
Like most hostas, ‘Sugar and Cream’ grows best in partial shade to full shade, tolerates a wide range of well-drained soils, and prefers average, even moisture. Use it for contrasts of size, color, and texture in shaded perennial gardens and woodlands, or massed as a groundcover under large trees to complement their scale.
