Plant Features

Blueberry Muffin Hosta Plant a medium-sized perennial that forms a large mound of thick, rounded blue leaves. Blueberry Muffin is one of the best large blue hostas. Growing to be up to 14 inches tall and unfold to 36 inches wide. Performs the best in part shade in fertile, well-drained soils. Blueberry Muffin 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

Hosta Companion Plants: Astilbe, Dicentra, Ferns, GeraniumHelleborus, Hemerocallis, Iris

Blueberry Muffin 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.
