Plantain Lily Growing and Maintenance Tips

To stay alive, Zebra Stripes Hosta needs about an hour of morning sun, and dappled shade for the rest of the day. Because of the white foliage, it produces very little chlorophyll, and cannot survive in dense shade.

Genus Overview: Hosta

Common Name: Plantain Lily

Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Hosta grow best in a rich, moist, well-drained soil, in partial to full shade. Early to mid-morning sun and dappled shade in the afternoon are ideal conditions for most hosta cultivars. Some are full sun tolerant, when consistent moisture is provided. Cleaning out dormant foliage in early winter will help reduce the insect population, such as slug larvae.
