    patanne about growing Hosta 'Earth Angel'
  • I haven’t found much to love about this hosta. The leaves are pretty and white when they first emerge, but quickly turn to a boring green. Will try with more light to see if that extends the white.

  • These hostas have been troopers in my garden. They get a couple of hours of late afternoon sun, but they never slow down.
