Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Hosta, Plantain Lily, Twilight Plantain Lily
Hostas are herbaceous perennials grown for their attractive leaves, tolerance for shade, toughness, and mounding habit. This one, ‘Twilight,' adds large size and elegant variegation. It makes a spreading mound of heart -shaped, pointed, deep-veined leaves that are dark green with wide irregular warm-yellow margins. The leaves have heavy substance and some resistance to slugs. The flowers are lavender, striped, and tubular, and are borne in clusters on stems that rise above the leaves in mid-summer.
Like most hostas, ‘Twilight’ 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 and color in shaded perennial gardens and woodlands, as a specimen plant, or massed as a ground cover under large trees to complement their scale and brighten the shade with flecks of gold.
