Plant Name: Hosta, Wide Brim
Scientific Name: Hosta x ‘Wide Brim’
Color: Blue Green Chartreuse Edge
The Wide Brim hosta got its name because of the size, shape, and color of its leaves. Since the foliage tends to be broader, this plant typically reaches a width of 2 to 3 feet. It’s a great way to fill in a wide, open space in your flower beds. Wide brim hostas are also a striking accent for shady areas or those next to wooded areas. The wide, yellow-green border of each leaf will brighten up these dark spots on your property.
The Wide Brim hosta grows at a moderate pace and produces lavender blooms in the summer, typically from June to September. It requires regular watering (at least once a week) but keep an eye on it during periods of very high temperatures, as it may need moisture more frequently.
