Almost exclusively shade-lovers Hostas are principally grown for their valuable foliage detail over the spring and summer months. Their planting versatility enables use as groundcover in a border or as an understorey to shrubby plantings or equally they make handsome specimens to grace a garden planter. Hosta 'Devon Green' is a chance sport of Hosta 'Halcyon' forming dense medium sized hummocks of heart-shaped leaves. Being dark in colour their highly glossy surface throws into relief the distinct mid rib veining. Lily-like flowers of pale lilac appear in high summer.

Garden Care: Surround plants with a ring of crushed eggshells to offer protection from slug damage.
