Hosta 'Liberty'

(J. Machen Jr. 2000)

Clump Size: (VL) 48" x 24"

Leaf Size: 12" x 9" -- Vein Pairs: 12 - 13

Description: Leaves are upright and rounded with a point, lightly twisted, medium blue-green changing to green with a wide yellow to cream margin. It is stunning when mature but takes a few extra years to really show its color. (PP#12531)

Blooms: Lavender flowers in summer.

Comments: This sport of Hosta 'Sagae' is somewhat slow growing like its parent but develops excellent size and color in time. This plant and its relatives send down very deep roots so water deeply and do not disturb them once planted. We also find that by burying the crown 2 to 3" deep in very well-aerated soil this hosta tends to develop much faster.

Light: Light sun to full shade. -- Soil: Deep, rich, consistently moist soil.

Related Plants: Magic Fire PP#17524, Majesty, Sagae

Zones: 2 - 8

    This was a hosta I just had to have once I saw it. I's growing nicely despite the fact that its competing with tree roots and probaly doesn't get as much water as my other hostas because it's out of reach of the irrigation system.

    Liberty is one of my favorites, maybe because I am always drawn to the yellow variegated but mine holds it's great, yellow color all season and stands out in a shade garden. It's no wonder it won Hosta of the Year 2012.
