Special Attributes

Whirlwind Hosta Lily features pointed, heart shape, twisted and folding leaves that change color over the season. New leaves emerge deep green with creamy white painted centers. As the season moves along the centers turn to a light to lime green. By the end of the season the leaves are almost all green. In summer, soft-lavender trumpet-shape flowers on tall stems rise above the foliage to attract hummingbirds and butterflies. This one has been very dependable in our gardens.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a dense mound to about 18 inches tall and up to 3 to 4 feet wide with outstanding color and texture, Whirlwind Hosta Lily is ideal for use as an accent, in groupings, massed as a groundcover (deciduous) in landscape borders, or as a border along walkways and paths. A very unique hosta you'll want to plant near patios and other outdoor living spaces. It is perfect under large shade trees, decks, covered porches and any other shady location. Don't think you have any shade? Look on the east side of your home. Also very nice in pots, planters and other containers or as a fine addition to mixed hosta gardens and woodland gardens.

Spacing:  30 inches apart for mass plantings;  5 feet apart for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

Whirlwind Hosta Lily is easy to grow in most any moist but well drained soil of average fertility and shade or part shade. It prefers the shade, and will practically grow in the dark, so is perfect for planting under tall decks and large shade trees where not much sun shines. That said, morning oe late evening sun or all-day filtered sun is okay. Hot afternoon sun can scald the leaves, especially in warmer climates.
