Quick Overview:

Hosta ‘Heat Wave’ has cupped and corrugated chartreuse leaves with a wide blue-green margin. The center of the leaf will brighten if given more sun but too much sun affects the blue color. At maturity the leaves are almost completely blue with just a bolt of yellow in the center.  Can reach a larger size (18″T x 40″W) if grown in ideal location of good fertile soil and sufficient moisture.  Great hosta that stands out in the garden!  Lavender flowers in summer.

Description

Easily grown in evenly moist, organically rich, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Best in part shade (some morning sun or sun dappled conditions). Established plants have some tolerance for dry shade (particularly plants with thick leaves), but soils should never be allowed to dry out. Full size and quality form are best achieved with consistent moisture. Water is best applied directly to the soil beneath the leaves. Divide plants as needed in spring or autumn. Division is usually easiest in early spring before the leaves unfurl. Plant in locations protected from wind.
