Hosta, Halycon

Plant Name: Hosta, Halycon

Scientific Name: Hosta x ‘Halycon’

Color: Frosty Blue

Size: #1

Blue hostas are some of the most unique plants you’ll ever add to your landscape. The Halycon hosta is a perfect example. The foliage on this plant is blue-green and the plant produces blue-violet blooms during the summer. In addition to its beautiful appearance, the foliage is also resistant to slugs.

Halycon requires medium moisture, so be sure to water frequently enough to keep the soil moist. It grows best in full shade or partial shade but is also appropriate for a shade garden.

Add Halycon to your yard as a ground cover or to fill in spots that need a pop of visual interest. Expect these plants to grow to an approximate height of 1 to 3 feet and an approximate width of 1 to 3 feet. Summertime blooms will attract hummingbirds, making this an excellent choice for anyone who loves these tiny creatures.
