Hosta 'Francee' is often regarded as one of the finest white-margined hostas and showcases medium to dark green, heart-shaped leaves, each gracefully edged with narrow, crisp white margins. This variegation remarkably endures even in the sun, and the plant matures into a dense, arching mound. Beyond its striking foliage, it treats the garden to funnel-shaped, pale lavender flowers that bloom from mid to late summer, perched on 30" scapes. Whether tucked into shady woodland areas, borders, or even containers, its lush, mounding foliage ensures 'Francee' remains a standout in any setting. August Moon is shipped as a bare root, a method we favor for its ability to establish quickly, double in size compared to its potted counterparts within the first season, and omit the necessity for plastic pots—providing an eco-friendly advantage.

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.
