Plant Features

August Moon Hosta Plants offer corrugated, ridged leaves of bright gold and chartreuse that have thick substance and excellent slug resistance. Plants are tolerant of full sun, which will intensify the gold color in the foliage, but must be provided adequate moisture. Produces pale-lavender bell-shaped flowers. The foliage brings wonderful color and texture to the garden! Plantain lilies thrive when grown in moist soils with between 2-5 hours of sun. Hummingbirds and bees are attracted to it flowers. August Moon ships as a bare root. We like growing from bare roots because they establish quickly, become twice the size of a potted plant in the first season, and eliminate the need for plastic pots (a win for the environment).


Common Names: funkia, funkias, giboshi, plantain lily


Companion Planting: Astilbe, Dicentra, Ferns, Geranium, Grasses, Helleborus, Hemerocallis, Iris


August Moon Hosta Plant Care Instructions: Soil should be kept moist during the early part of the season. Once the summer heat sets in, the soil can dry slightly between waterings. In late fall, after frost has turned the foliage brown, it should be cut back to the ground. Roots should be divided every 3-5 years. Early fall or early spring is an excellent time to divide. Spring is also the best time to apply one application of liquid fertilizer.

Comment: 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... More details
