Home :: Hosta Plants :: Hosta 'Cool as a Cucumber'

Sorry, we are only shipping hostas and daylilies at the moment. The website will be updated for a select number of perennials in mid to late September for shipping the week of 9/23 and we will post a message when the inventory is updated. We can ship hostas and daylilies now, and orders for those are being processed within 7 days.

The nursery will be closing for good on October 12th and this will be our last year in operation.  We have not put anything into production so our fall inventory will be very limited. We are sorry for the disappointment however we thank you for your years of support.

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
