Description

Krossa Regal hosta is a herbaceous perennial that features frosty-blue green foliage that grows in a vase-like habit. The upright growth habit and unique color make this hosta a favorite among gardeners for shady areas of your garden.

The hosta foliage is accented by pale lavender flowers atop 5-foot tall stalks. This flowers appear in mid to late summer. The flowers are not fragrant, but they have been know to attract butterflies, hummingbirds and songbirds. Some gardeners choose to cut back the bloom stalks in order to encourage foliage growth, which is where hosta really shine.

This shade loving perennial gets tall for a hosta, maturing to 3' high by 3' wide. Its vase shaped mound is unique to hostas, which traditionally drape when mounding. Plant in full shade to shade and use it in containers, under shady tree canopies or along forest floors, really anywhere shade is prevalent. Light shade to shade is best for retaining its frosty-blue green color, more sun can result in stress to the plant.

Care & Use

Getting Started: Understanding Your New Plant

Review your plant's information on our website or the tag that comes with it. Be mindful of sunlight preferences, soil type, and spacing needs.

Our plants are adaptable but grow best in the correct USDA Zones. Click here to learn more about your USDA Zone.

Planting Instructions

Dig a Hole

First, dig a hole three times the width of the root ball of your plant. This makes it easier for the root system to spread out quickly. Dig the hole deep enough that your plant will sit level with or slightly above the ground around it.

Amend Your Soil

Mix your native soil with rich gardening soil to provide extra nutrients and support plant growth. If your soil is clay-heavy, we recommend mixing your native clay soil with equal parts of Pine Bark mulch to improve drainage and the overall breathability of your soil.

Place Your Plant

Examine the roots. If they appear tightly bound, gently coax them apart; this ensures they can spread into the new soil. Place your plant in the hole so the top of the rootball is even with the surrounding soil—Backfill around it with the amended soil mixture. The roots need access to oxygen for your plant to thrive, so do not cover the rootball; place soil around it.

Mulch Your Plants

Top the soil beneath your plant with 3-4 inches of mulch to help it retain moisture. Be careful not to cover the rootball - your new plants roots need access to oxygen.

Water Your Plant

Soak the plant with a hose afterward to hydrate the plant, as well as get the soil and mulch situated. Develop a regular watering schedule based on your plant's needs and local weather patterns. Remember, over watering is just as, if not more, harmful than under watering.
