Hosta 'Snake Eyes' is one of Wendy's Faves this season...this is what she has to say:
This Hosta is a showcase in shady gardens because the markings allow it to standout like a multicoloured light bulb. Each leaf is a different variation, the centre being green-gold with edges streaked in bright white and those are encased in a darker green edging. It is an absolute must have for Hosta lovers like me!
Very showy! 'Snake Eyes' will grab your attention with its unique colouring white streaks that separate the two tones of green.
Hostas are hardy, versatile perennials that are perfect for shaded gardens and require little care. They offer large, bold leaves often marked with contrasting colours. They thrive in all soils from pure clay to boggy ground and they usually get bigger every year. The leaves range in shape from round to lance-shaped, and colours can be yellow to green to blue, often with white, yellow or green marginal markings. Their dense foliage crowds out most garden weeds.
Hostas will bear flowers, usually lavender or white flowers, that grow on tall stalks in early summer. They make a wonderful contrast when planted with small-leaved plants and most certainly add texture to the landscape.
