Plant Features

The Hosta 'Wolverine' commands attention even from afar. With its distinct, wavy, tapering leaves that span up to 10 inches, it showcases a stunning interplay of blue-green centers bordered by broad gold margins. This medium-sized hosta grows swiftly, forming a dense mound that cascades gracefully, encapsulating its lively foliage. By late summer, Wolverine further enhances its display with lavender flowers that rise on 20-inch scapes, attracting hummingbirds and bees. Acclaimed for its remarkable garden performance, this variety has been honored with several awards, including the Eunice Fisher Distinguished Merit Hosta Award and the American Hosta Society Benedict Garden Performance Award of Merit. A brilliant addition to any garden! Wolverine 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.

Common Names: funkia, funkias, giboshi, plantain lily

Hosta Companion Plants: Astilbe, Dicentra, Ferns, Geranium, Grasses, Helleborus, Hemerocallis, Iris

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.

Amazing Wolverine Hosta

This is the 2nd order I have placed with GrowJoy. My reason for coming back a 2nd time is based on the super care taken with each plant in the shipping box. I have ordered from many other suppliers and I am amazed and greatly pleased that GrowJoy is head and shoulders above other suppliers in reliability, service, and quality of each and every plant.
