The sieboldianaElegans hosta will be a great addition to any garden or landscape. Elegans is known for its huge heart-shaped smoky-blue leaves that turn deep green by mid-summer. Its leaves also have deep ribbing that gives it a great texture and helps with slug resistance. A delicate white (sometimes lilac at the base) flower will come up in spring to mid-summer.

This hosta is a great addition behind bright colored flowers in your garden or landscape. It can tolerate heavy dry shade, so it is very versatile.
