Plant Features

Hosta 'August Moon' is a standout known for its vibrant color transition, from soft yellow to a dazzling golden hue, adding a burst of brightness to shaded borders and woodland gardens. Growing between 14-18 inches in height and spreading 20-24 inches, this mounded plant thrives in Hardiness Zones 3-9, tolerating everything from full shade to complete sun exposure. Its corrugated leaf texture not only contributes to its unique aesthetic but also offers slug resistance. In mid to late summer, the plant is graced with pale-lavender, bell-shaped flowers on 24-inch scapes that allure hummingbirds and bees. This versatile hosta, while being a perfect fit for various garden styles, from Japanese to cottage gardens, needs well-drained, moist soil, and can even tolerate clay.

Hosta Plant Care Instructions: During the early part of the season, the soil should be kept constantly moist. As the summer heat sets in, allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings. In late fall, once frost has turned the foliage brown, cut it back to the ground. To ensure vigor and prevent overcrowding, divide the roots every 3-5 years. Late fall or early spring are the best times for this task.

Beautiful color

Plants arrived healthy and strong. Beautiful addition to my part shade and hot southern garden.

Can’t wait to see these mature to full size

I bought these and a handful of other hostas to start a hosta garden in my shaded backyard. First, GrowJoy was so wonderful about scheduling. I wanted to ensure I was in town when they arrived so I asked to have shipment date changed and GrowJoy did exactly what I needed. Unfortunately my whole family got sick the week the plants arrived so I could not plant them right away. And then another onslaught of delays continued (august was not a great month). So it ended up being 1 whole month before I was able to plant the hostas! I am pleased to say that even with that delay they all remained healthy and now (finally) are growing beautifully in my garden. I have never received a bad plant from GrowJoy and even though they have had difficulty/bad luck with contractors and business expansion plans this past year, they have continued to provide the same quality plants and wonderful customer support throughout it all
