Hot Plant Alert
Made in the Shade Alert
These are Not Your Grandma's Hostas
Hello Cutting Edge Gardeners and Shady Characters,
Hosta have come a long way in recent years. At Phoenix Perennials we've been loving all of the new introductions offering new and unique shapes, sizes, and variegations that just 10 years ago would have been unheard of. These innovations include tricolours, miniatures, highly rippled forms, bold colours that hold strong through the summer, and even a burgundy-leaved Hosta!

In this Alert we highlight some of the many cool and interesting Hosta in stock now at Phoenix, though there are many other cultivars also waiting to be discovered.


Cheers, Gary and the Phoenicians
