Illinois' Best


Hosta 'Francee'

Outstanding shade plant

Hosta has a full, dense habit. Cultivars can vary greatly in size, shape, leaf color, flower shape, flower color and bloom times. Clusters of long, pretty leaves form a mound of attractive foliage. Tall spires of lavender, white or purple flowers tower over a round clump of leaves in the summer. Hosta is great for shade gardens, borders and containers.
