Home :: Hosta Plants :: Hosta 'Elegans'

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 'Elegans'

(Arends/Hylander/AHS 2002)

Clump Size: (L) 61" x 28"

Leaf Size: 15.5" x 11" -- Vein Pairs: 16 - 18

Description: Thick, corrugated, blue-green leaves form a very large mound.

Blooms: Near white flowers bloom just above the foliage in June and July.

Comments: First introduced in 1905, Hosta sieboldiana 'Elegans' is the grand daddy of all of the large blue-green hostas. It is very slow growing but forms a very large mound in time. Locally it is known as the "elephant ear hosta", and that nickname is becoming more and more common.  This is one of those 15/20 year plants...  Give it 15 to 20 years in the garden and it will be a standout.

Light: Part shade to full shade. -- Soil: Humus-rich, moist soil.

Related Plants: American Halo, Barbara Ann, Frances Williams, Golden Meadows, Great Expectations, Northern Exposure, Thunderbolt

Zones: 2 - 8
