Hosta 'Erotica'

Hosta (Medium)

Plant Type:


Hosta 'Erotica' - Medium. Danny Van Eechaute introduced this enhanced version of 'Kiwi Full Monty'. As in 'Kiwi Full Monty' the broad blue blades encompass a pale green-chartreuse central flame. The distinguishing characteristic is the thicker bright white lightning edge tween the blue and light green flame at the center of each leaf. The prominent white demarcation makes this quite fine hosta extra special and showy. Leaf texture is moderately thick. That milk white limning also alludes to a blue version of 'Snake Eyes'. Late spring or early summer fragrant flowers are lavender. The snake, nudity and porn aside: it's wonderful. Established potted Hosta from division.

Genus Overview: Hosta

Common Name: Hosta

Hosta. Hosta is a staple for shade gardeners. Hostas prefer open to dappled shade conditions. Early morning or late day sun is generally acceptable. The exception to the rule (and it seems in the plant world there is always at least one exception to the rule!) is Hosta plantaginea which requires more sun for flowering to occur. Hostas can fill a midsummer’s day dream with spikes of lavender, purple and white blossoms, some fragrant. There are growers and collectors who dislike hosta flowers though I find this a curious affectation; I am personally grateful for perennials of easy disposition that so readily bloom, carefree, adorning and lighting the woodland garden during a period that might otherwise be a flowerless void. Flower your garden! Dig in. Have fun. Hostas prefer fertile draining soil with many demonstrating moderate drought tolerance once established. Many of the following are offered as pot-grown divisions of our stock plants. Others are from tissue culture. For Hosta there are several different size charts available that can be found on line with some digging. Of course, some plants straddle these arbitrary determinations. We are using the following classification...

Mature Heights:

Miniature: less than 6 inches

Small: 6 - 12 inches

Medium: 12 - 18 inches

Large: 18 - 24 inches

Very Large: 24+ inches

Please note that if Hosta is purchased in our autumn shipping windows they will arrive cutback and ready for the long winter's nap.
