- Blue-green centers with wide, creamy-yellow edges
- Dense clusters of pale lavender flowers
- A large growing Hosta that is sun tolerant
Hosta 'Liberty' is a beautiful sport of H. 'Sagae' with its blue-green leaves that have wide, dramatic, yellow margins that fade to creamy white as the season progresses. The leaves are of good substance and have great slug resistance. In early to mid summer the lavender flowers appear on top of 40" scapes. Voted the 2nd best Hosta variety in an American Hosta Society poll!

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.
