Go Back Wishing Well

Hosta 'Wishing Well'

Plant Type: Hostas

This large hosta is prized for holding its beautiful blue color long into the season, even when planted in 2/3 day of sun.  Its huge leaves emerge slowly, exhibiting a unique cupped, rippled, corrugated texture.  They unfold slowly as they mature.  Since they are of thick substance, the leaves are more slug resistant.

This large hosta has a good growth rate compared to some other large blues.

Near-white flowers begin to appear in midsummer and last into late summer.
