Description

Unique shapes play a huge part in jazzing up shade gardens. This hosta is sure to draw the eye with incredibly thin, wavy, crinkled leaves that erupt from the center of the plant. Hosta 'Silly String' starts out a fresh blue in spring and then matures to an attractive blue-green as the season progresses.

Hosta 'Silly String' Plantain Lily sports lavender blooms in summer that attract butterflies and other pollinators.

While hostas can be drought-tolerant, they thrive in moist, fertile soil. They can be grown in clay soil and under black walnut trees.

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.
