Hosta 'Appletini' is a miniature Plantain Lily with bright golden yellow leaves in spring that become apple green by midsummer. The shiny, wavy leaves of Hosta 'Appletini' have good substance and form neat mounds topped by pale purple blooms in late summer. Its diminutive size makes this one great for fairy gardens and mixed containers.
Hosta 'Appletini' prefers partial to full shade and moist, humus-rich, well-drained soil. Hosta will grow in ordinary garden soil and withstand drought, but they are most beautiful when provided consistent moisture. They will tolerate clay soil and can be grown under black walnut trees. Hosta 'Designer Genes' Plantain Lily is stunning with brilliant yellow leaves on red petioles.
Plantain Lily are classic perennial shade garden plants that will also grow well in containers.
