Plant of the Month – July

Hosta ‘Francee’

Hosta ‘Francee’ plantain lily

When it comes to deciding which hostas to grow, foliage and flower should be considered, as well as their form and vigour, and how well they combine with other plants. Hosta ‘Francee’ was introduced in 1986 and is still considered one of the best, now classic, variegated hostas to enjoy from the first buds in spring until autumn. Best in part shade, it mixes well with woodland plants and in perennial beds. The flowers are excellent, and despite being prone to slugs and snails it is easy, long-lived and of tremendous value in the garden.
