It has strong, waxy leaves that form striking clumps, making it perfect for ground covering arrangements. Its showy, trumpet-shaped flowers bloom in late summer and grow on sturdy, upright stems above its foliage crown. Hosta Albomarginata is a great companion plant. It adds colour, contrast, and texture to garden landscape designs. Characteristics Foliage Colour: green with white margins Flower Colour: violet Current Size: 1L pot Approx. Growth Height: up to 45cm Flowering Period: late summer Uses: gardens, borders, containers Tolerance: frost tolerant Growing Habit: clump-forming Exposure: sheltered, exposed Hardiness: hardy Rate of Growth: fast Requirements Light Requirements: partial shade, shade Soil Requirements: clay, loamy, acid, neutral Moisture: moist, well-drained Caring and Maintenance Hostas are herbaceous plants, meaning that the foliage of the plant will die in the winter and will re-emerge from its rootstock in spring, making spring the perfect time to divide and replant clumps. Spread a thin layer of compost around the plants in early spring or late autumn. Deadhead faded flowers and stems in order to maintain the appearance of the plant. Planting Plant spreading: up to 50cm Hostas are typically long-lived perennials that adapt very well to new habitats. They grow best in a moist, fertile and slightly acidic soil in partially or fully shaded areas. Hostas are native to Eastern Asia as herbaceous perennial plants and are valued as shade-loving plants, although some of the varieties can grow in partial shade, and even under relatively strong sun. Hostas impress with their simplicity, elegance and variation. Their leaves come in different sizes, have different shapes, and an unusual variety of colours. They can be lanceolate, oval, or orbicular to nearly circular in shape, and the leaves may vary in colour, from shades of green, yellow, silvery-blue, greenish-blue, or white to golden. These colours will appear as single or various combinations of shades with stripes, discolourations, spots, or with dark or bright margins on the leaves. Inflorescences appear in the second half of June to September. They come in shades of white, lavender, or purple, and most of them are slightly scented, bell-shaped or funnel-shaped. Hostas can be planted either as specimen plants or in garden floral arrangements as a background for other hostas, ornamental grasses, or perennials. They will bring life to dark corners of the garden, where most other plants would fail. In open areas, hostas look best in rock gardens, damp borders, and woodlands, perfectly complementing its undergrowth.

Primrose Plants Spirea White Astilbe Arendsii White - 1L Pot

Spirea White Astilbe Arendsii White - 1L Pot Astilbes are part of the herbaceous perennial family and are cultivated by gardeners for their long-blooming, plume-like flowers in soft shades. The plants are widely recognised for their profuse blooms, airy foliage and stiff stalks. They are best suited to water-logged conditions and tolerate clay soils well. The flowers stay in bloom for several weeks and slowly fade in color as they dry. Astilbe are the perfect choice for flowerbeds and borders, however they can also be grown in containers. Characteristics Flower Colour: white Foliage Colour: green Current Size: 1L pot Approx. Growth Height: up to 1m Flowering Time: summer Uses: gardens, borders, containers Tolerance: wet soil, frost tolerant Growing Habit: clump forming Exposure: exposed, sheltered Hardiness: hardy Rate of Growth: fast Wildlife friendly Requirements Light Requirements: full sun, partial shade Soil Requirements: acid, alkaline, neutral, average to rich loam Moisture: average to moist, fertile Caring and Maintenance Extremely little maintenance is required. The flower heads will dry on the plant and remain attractive for many months. The flowers can be deadheaded when they start to dry out or can be left for winter interest and cut in the spring. Divide every 3-4 years to keep plants healthy and maintain their vigour. Apply a thin layer of compost each spring, followed by a thin layer of mulch for moisture retention and weed control. Planting Spacing: 45cm Plant between January and May at 45cm apart. Prepare the flower bed by using a garden fork or tiller to loosen the soil and mix with a small amount of compost. Prepare a hole for the plant, place the plant in the hole and carefully yet firmly fill in with loose soil. Water thoroughly. Plant in moist, fertile, humus-rich soil. Not suitable for soils that dry out. A perennial is a plant that lives for more than two years. Perennials are flowering plants which grow and bloom over the spring and summer and then die back every autumn and winter. Perennials typically grow structures that allow them to adapt to living from one year to the next through a form of vegetative reproduction rather than seeding. Perennial plants often have deep, extensive root systems which can hold soil to prevent erosion, capture dissolved nitrogen before it can contaminate ground and surface water, and outcompete weeds. They grow very well in conditions that are poor in resources. This is due to earlier emergence in the spring and the development of larger root systems which can access water and soil nutrients deeper in the soil.

Perennials are flowering plants which grow and bloom over the spring and summer and then die back every autumn and winter. They typically grow structures that allow them to adapt to living from one year to the next through a form of vegetative reproduction rather than seeding. Perennial plants often have deep, extensive root systems which can hold soil to prevent erosion, capture dissolved nitrogen before it can contaminate ground and surface water, and outcompete weeds. They grow very well in conditions that are poor in resources due to their earlier emergence in the spring, and the development of larger root systems which can access water and soil nutrients deeper in the soil.
