Hosta 'Hans'

(Avent)

Clump Size: (M) 32" x 21"

Leaf Size: 9" x 7" -- Vein Pairs: 14

Description: Corrugated and ruffled leaves have a wide blue-green margin and a white center.

Blooms: Pale lavender flowers bloom in midsummer.

Comments: Hosta 'Hans' is an improved form of Hosta 'Andrew' which is also a white centered sport of Hosta 'Blue Mammoth' but with a thinner margin.  According to Tony Avent, Hosta 'Hans' was actually a tissue culture mistake that occurred during the production of Hosta 'Andrew' and in reality most of the plants of Hosta 'Andrew' on the market may be this plant.  It is a very slow grower and will need rich conditions to grow well, plus some bright light may help with growth.

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

Related Plants: Blue Mammoth

Zones: 2 - 8
