Hosta 'Fall Bouquet'

Hosta (Medium)

Plant Type:


Hosta 'Fall Bouquet' - Medium. Eight-inch long, three inches wide dark blue-green matte-finished leaves erupt into a small fountain appearing to be dusted in fine powder. Each leaf exhibits a broad undulation. Long petioles are heavily spotted and splashed in red to red-purple. An established plant will reach about 12 inches tall and 18 inches wide. Few consider the flowering attributes of hosta; indeed, the foliage for good reason is the focus. However, most flower in mid-summer when the shade garden is generally bereft of the dazzling early season wonders. And then there are the late bloomers... The flower show is notable; two-inch flowers are medium purple with white bars and long white anthers flowing out of each tube. And they occur in great numbers on multiple stems, a fall bouquet indeed. A season extender, 'Fall Bouquet' flowers late, from early August to mid-September on 16-inch scapes. An established plant will reach about 12 inches tall and 18 inches wide. P. Aden 1986 registration; the pod parent is Aden 322, the pollinating parent is Aden 324.

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.
