Hosta 'Cool as a Cucumber'

(Walters Gardens)

Clump Size: (ML) 36" x 20"

Leaf Size: 11" x 5" -- Vein Pairs: 8 - 10

Description: This hosta slowly forms a medium to large, graceful arching mound of elongated white leaves with a wide green border. (PPAF)

Blooms: Pale lavender flowers bloom in summer.

Comments: Hosta 'Cool as a Cucumber' is a wide margined sport of the notoriously difficult to grow Hosta 'Cascades'. The extra green on the edge helps to give it more vigor and the leaves seem to hold up well through the summer. Some references say this plant will reach 4' across but we have listed it as 3' to be conservative as we don't think it will get that large under most conditions.

Light: Light sun to light shade. -- Soil: Rich, moist soil.

Zones: 2 - 8
