Details

Hosta 'Zebra Stripes' is a rarity for collectors. In spring similar to white hosta 'White Feather'. Beautiful white leaves with all that goes with it (sensitive to the sun etc.). Later in the season, the color turns to green so, that at first veins became green, and then all leaves turns to green. At a certain period of time the plant has a very interesting color pattern. We recommend only for a very experienced growers. A little bit better leaves substance comparing to White Feather, which is in particular mainly in the spring very similar. T. Avent registered in 2005. Hosta 'Zebra Stripes' is a very special plant.

How to grow hostas

Save light shade to shade place in your garden to plant hostas. Filtered sun is best for the colorful varieties to reach their full color contrast. The green and blue hostas are the most shade-tolerant. Usually the yellow cultivars are the most sun-tolerant. The most dangerous is a direct sunshine, especially hot afternoon sun. This is the most critical where temperatures are high. Variegated varieties, especially those with a lot of white in the leaves, burn very easily. Blue color of leaves turns to green-blue or even fully green with too much direct sun. Plants with thick leaves are better suited for dry soil conditions than thin-leaved ones, but none is able to grow years-long in very dry soil. Plant hostas in moist, humus-rich soil.

Water your hostas well immediately as you plant them. Give them water regularly during their first one or two growing season.

Hostas grow slowly and may take 2 to 5 years to reach their full size, longer for the largest species and cultivars. Reserve a plenty of space in your perennial bed for hostas. Most of them are medium sized or large perennials. Hostas are almost fully disease and pest resistant. The most dangerous injury can by caused by slugs, snails and deers.
