Hosta 'Dancing Queen'

Plantain Lily

Hosta 'Dancing Queen' has large, 13 in. long, wedge-shaped leaves that have a rippled "piecrust" edge. They emerge bright yellow in spring and remain yellow all season, although they may turn pale yellow to greenish if grown in too much shade. In midsummer, it has pale lavender flowers on 28 in. scapes.

Plantain Lily Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Easily grown in evenly moist, organically rich, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Best in part shade (some morning sun or sun dappled conditions). Established plants have some tolerance for dry shade (particularly plants with thick leaves), but soils should never be allowed to dry out. Divide plants as needed in spring or autumn. Division is usually easiest in early spring before the leaves unfurl. Plant in locations protected from wind.
