Hosta 'Embroidery'


Clump Size: (M) 30" x 15"

Leaf Size: 10.5" x 8.5" -- Vein Pairs: 12

Description: Leaves are heart-shaped, shiny green with a creamy white center in spring surrounded by gathered, puckered edges. By the end of the season the leaves turn nearly solid green but keep the unruly edging.

Blooms: Near white flowers bloom in late July and August.

Comments: Hosta 'Embroidery' is unique in the way the edges grow at a different rate from the center resulting in a slightly corrugated edge surrounding a smooth center. A solid green sport is somewhat common and should be removed from the clump if it occurs or it will overpower the main plant.

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

Related Plants: Green Velveteen (solid green sport)

Zones: 2 - 8

    I own Embroidery Hosta. Find it to be a very slow grower.
