Hosta 'Birchwood Parky's Gold'Synonym(s): Hosta 'Golden Nakaiana' Common Name: 'Plantain lily'
A robust clump-forming perennial with smallish, heart-shaped, golden leaves and bell-shaped pale purple flowers. Jul-Aug. H45cm S60cm.
Hostas will grow in any fertile, moisture-retentive garden soil, but thin sands and heavy clays are best improved before planting. Best grown in shade or partial shade but can tolerate sun as long as the soil is moist. Mulch around the plant in autumn or spring. This is a small but vigorous variety, which relatively quickly forms a good clump in light shade and makes an excellent contrast with ferns at the edge of a woodland or shady border. Also looks good growing in a pot.
