Hosta 'Cool as a Cucumber' has cascading foliage that forms a nice mound in the garden. The long, narrow leaves have bright green margins and clear white centers. Creamy white scapes hold delicate light lavender flowers in early summer. This variety will add subtle, sophistacted color to the garden.

Homeowner Growing Tips: Hostas grow best in moist, well-drained soil with high organic content and slightly acidic to neutral pH. They prefer slightly sandy soil over heavy clays as they need aeration for the roots. Grow in high-filtered or dappled sunlight--they can tolerate morning sun but not hot afternoon sun. Hostas are prone to slugs and deer browsing, though some kinds with thicker foliage may not be damaged as badly. Apply slug bait in early spring before the leaves have unfurled to prevent damage. Divide large clumps, if necessary, in spring when sprouts appear, or late summer. Remove dead foliage from the garden in late fall to early winter.
