Hosta 'Minuteman'

  • Rounded, dark green leaves with white edges
  • Sun tolerant
  • Slug resistant

Spectacular plant with dark green leaves that are engulfed by bright white margins. The foliage is slightly wavy, cupped, and of good substance. Fantastic pale lavender flowers are on tall stems just above the plant and are attractive to hummingbirds. Exquisite medium-sized Hosta that is a fast grower and looks amazing in borders. A sport of H. 'Francee'.

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.
