Forming a substantial mound of leaves up to 3 feet across, the large oval leaves of the First Frost Hosta begin the season a gorgeous blue-gray edged in light yellow, and mature for the summer into dark green with white edges – just like the first frost has touched it. The narrow feathering of the dark green into the white is especially decorative and charming. Standing a little over a foot tall, by late July and into August it is topped by flower stalks carrying flowers that are white with a hint of lavender. A superb easy-care hosta that delivers maturity and good looks quickly and without any special care – what more can we ask for?

  • Broad leaves are blue-green with yellow edges in spring
  • Summer colors are dark-green with white borders
  • Medium-sized plant for mass-planting and edging large beds
  • Near-white flowers in August
  • Winner of top ‘garden performance’ award

Easy to grow and fast-growing, the First Frost Hosta thrives in morning sun and afternoon shade in cooler zones, and in light full shade everywhere. Plant it in any garden soil that is well-drained and reasonably moist. Adding compost and other organic additives, mixed into the soil and used as mulch, will give you plenty of strong growth, and a healthy plant. Pests or diseases are virtually unknown, but hosta is not suitable where you have issues with deer or rabbits. Cut off the flower stems when the flowers have all faded, and cut back the leaves once frost hits them.
