Ginko Craig Hosta Plants produce sturdy, dark green, oval-shaped leaves with distinct white edging and light grey streaking. The hosta also produces tall, lavender flowers that appear late in the summer. Ginko Craig 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

Ginko Craig 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.
