Plant Features

The Hosta 'Wrinkle in Time' stands out with its dynamic dark green leaves, adorned with showy wavy margins that feature a pronounced wave starting a third of the way from the leaf base. In the spring, these margins are highlighted with a creamy yellow hue, which gracefully transitions to a creamy white by summer. An additional layer of intrigue is added by the gray-green tones where the margins and centers overlap. This vivacious variety is not just about its foliage; by midsummer, it produces elegant lavender flowers that rise prominently above its textured leaves. Being vigorous and fast-growing, Wrinkle in Time is a perfect choice for garden edging or as a decorative centerpiece, infusing landscapes with its distinct charm and character. Wrinkle in Time 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.
