Go Back Afterglow

Hosta 'Afterglow'

Plant Type: Hostas

This new hosta features a striking yellow margin surrounding the large, green, heart-shaped leaves and forms an impressive upright mound in the landscape.  In early summer, pale lavender, funnel-shaped flowers top the clump. 

This large hosta is best used as a specimen in the garden and it combines beautifully with ferns, Corydalis, and sedge.

Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve. Their large leaves provide excellent coverage for dying bulb foliage. All hostas also grow well in city environments where the air may be polluted by car exhaust, etc.
