Description / 'Stained Glass' Hosta Plantain Lily

American Hosta Growers' Association Hosta of the Year 2006

The Stained Glass Hosta, a vibrant variety within the Hosta genus, captivates gardeners and nature enthusiasts alike with its three seasons of interest. This herbaceous rhizomatous perennial is celebrated for its ornamental foliage, which embodies the artistry of nature through its large, broad, heart-shaped leaves. The leaves boast a radiant golden-yellow center encased by dark green margins, creating a mesmerizing stained-glass window effect, enhanced by the sunlight to reveal more golden tones, mirroring the beauty of early spring.

As a sport of 'Guacamole', the Stained Glass Hosta plant exhibits a rapid growth rate and forms a symmetrical mounding habit. It distinguishes itself by showcasing its variegation earlier in the spring and maintaining a much brighter gold color throughout the growing season. This Stained Glass Hosta is a descendant of the fragrant Hosta plantaginea, ensuring that it carries large fragrant pale lavender flowers, which bloom on long 30-inch scapes in late summer. These nearly white blooms not only attract butterflies and hummingbirds but also serve as exquisite additions to floral arrangements.

The Hosta Stained Glass thrives in a range of garden settings, from being a stunning focal point in containers to providing elegant edging along garden paths. It's a testament to the sun tolerance of certain hosta varieties, flourishing in partly sunny to shady locations with humus-rich, moist, well-draining soil. Although it prefers a slightly acidic to neutral pH (5.5-7.5), its adaptability means it can thrive in various soil types. To preserve its vivid yellow leaves and overall health, the Stained Glass Hosta plant requires consistent moisture throughout the growing season and benefits from some morning or dappled sun.

Shade garden stunners, hostas are low-maintenance perennials. Known for their variety of leaf colors and sizes, you can plant an entire shade garden using only hostas. Find tips for planting and maintenance in our Hosta Care Guide.
