Description

Hosta 'Pocketful of Sunshine' is a small Plantain Lily that quickly grows into compact clumps of thick puckered leaves. The broad, deep green leaves, which are distinctly cupped, have chartreuse centers that brighten to yellow as the season progresses. Its unique combination of color and form make it instantly recognizable. Lavender blooms appear in early mid summer.

Hosta 'Pocketful of Sunshine' 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.

Plantain Lily are classic perennial shade garden plants that will also grow well in containers.

We ship via UPS & 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.
