Outstanding Qualities

A splash of apple-green marks the interior of the handsome foliage on Hosta 'Fragrant Bouquet' with a blend of cream and lime along the irregular, wavy margins. Not to be outdone by the bold leaves, the near white flowers exude a lovely scent in summer.

Culture Notes
Hostas prefer a location in light to open shade. Sites with hot sun should be avoided. Plant it in a location with rich moist to well-drained soils. Most hosts will tolerate sandy sites as well as clay. During dry weather provide regular watering, especially in sandy soils. Flowers can be removed once the blooms have faded and the foliage can be cut to the ground in fall.
