Description

The leaves of Hosta 'Appletini' Plantain Lily resemble waxy green apples, starting out yellow and maturing to chartreuse by late summer. Lavender colored blooms appear on tall scapes above the foliage in summer.

While hostas can be drought-tolerant, they perform best when grown in moist, fertile soil. They can be grown in clay soils and under black walnut trees. Filtered shade or morning sun and afternoon shade is preferred for the best color.

Hosta 'Appletini' Plantain Lily would be excellent for edging pathways or in a mixed container planting of miniature hostas.

We ship via UPS or USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
