Quick Overview:

‘Wolverine’ was developed by Dr. James Wilkins, who named this hosta for the colors of his alma mater, the University of Michigan. In late summer, it has lavender flowers on 20 in. stems. ‘Wolverine’ is a medium-sized hosta that has a very fast growth rate and multiplies rapidly. It forms a mound with a cascading habit that grows 1 to 1.5 ft. tall and 2.5 to 3 ft. wide. ‘Wolverine’ was the winner of the Eunice Fisher Distinguished Merit Hosta Award in 2014 and the American Hosta Society Benedict Garden Performance Award of Merit in 2011.

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.
