    Versatile Plant that is Rich in Color!

    Hosta "Wide Brim" is a great choice if you're looking for...
    • blue-green color
    • very low maintenance plant
    • easy ground cover

    Unusual Shade of Green
    Add a different shade of green to your garden with Hosta 'Wide Brim'. This medium-sized hosta, growing up to 1.5 feet across and 3 feet tall, provides variegated dark green leaves tinged with blue. But that's not all -- the edges of these irregularly-shaped, pointy leaves are a creamy white / yellow band that acts as a frame for the unusual green color. The wide leaves themselves each grow up to 8 inches by 6 inches, and have strong lines in them that makes them look as if they've been quilted. Color, texture and strong visual interest, plus lavender colored flowers on tall stalks -- Hosta 'Wide Brim" has it all.

    Works Well in All Conditions
    Most "average" growing conditions work well for Hosta "Wide Brim". Average soil -- normal, sandy or loamy -- medium moisture and moderate shade all suit Wide Brim, so you can plant it anywhere out of the full sun. But, Wide Brim is OK with morning sun, so even that limit is negotiable.

    Extremely Low Effort
    All hostas are extremely low maintenance plants once they're established and Hosta 'Wide Brim' is no exception. Wide Brim prefers consistent moisture so appreciates a regular watering schedule; apply the water directly to the soil beneath the leaves, not on the leaves themselves. However, once this plant is established, it can tolerate some dryness in the soil. Hostas become dormant in the fall so the dying foliage can be removed any time between then and the spring.

    Workhorse Plant
    The Hosta "Wide Brim" is the workhorse plant of any shade garden. Starting as a feature plant when grown alone, it be grown with other hostas for ground cover and to contrast the different greens of their foliage. When mixed in with other perennials or with annuals, Wide Brim acts as a foil and a background for brightly-colored flowers throughout the growing season. Plant Wide Brim under roses or shrubs as a fill-in plant or in a border around a woodland garden. This plant has so many uses in your garden design, you'll want to include many more. Wide brim also thrives in planters if you're a little short on space.
