Hosta 'Francee'


Pot Size: 5.25 Inch Square Pot

  • White-edged, green leaves on a medium-sized variety
  • One of the best white-margined Hostas
  • Sun tolerant

Gorgeous Hosta with dark green leaves and bright white margins. The foliage is glossy, heart-shaped, and narrow. Versatile plant because it can be in either sun or shade. The color holds up well in sun. Lavender flowers are on tall stems just above the plant and are frequented by hummingbirds. It forms an excellent wide, low mound and is a rapid grower, making it a possible ground cover. A fabulous plant that is enjoyed for its great color and versatility. Voted one of the top Hosta varieties in American Hosta Society polls. Winner of the Royal Horticultural Society's 'Award of Garden Merit'.

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.
