'Sissinghurst White' is a hybrid lungwort cultivar which, like many of the hostas, is perhaps valued more for its attractive foliage than for its flowers. Silvery-white spotted leaves. Drooping clusters of funnel-shaped, white flowers bloom on short stalks just above the foliage in spring. Flowers typically age to pink. Common name of lungwort is in reference to the supposed resemblance of the spotted leaves to a diseased lung.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Prefers cool, organically rich, humusy soils that are kept consistently moist. Soils must not be allowed to dry out. Intolerant of wet, poorly drained soils however. Spreads very slowly by creeping roots, but is not invasive. Divide plants in fall if they become overcrowded. Plant leaves may retain some color in warm winters.
