The Hosta ‘August Moon’, Hosta sieboldiana, has wide, heart-shaped gold colored foliage with slightly rippled margins, making it very striking!
The white to pale lavender flowers bloom from July to August. Hostas are not known only for their flowers, but mostly for their foliage. With a plant height of 24” and a spread of 24-36”, ‘August Moon’ provides bright color in shade with its wonderful foliage.
Hosta ‘August Moon’ needs to be planted in a full shade area in any moist, well-drained area. It grows best in highly organic soils with a pH between 5.5 and 7.5. Sandy loam is better than clay because it provides more aeration for the roots.
This low care perennial is ideal for tubs and patio pots, and one of the most popular for landscape uses. A great choice for any beginner gardener!
‘August Moon’ needs high-filtered or dappled sunlight which is necessary for clean, healthy growth. Morning sun is tolerable and will help to intensify the leaf colors of this plant, but hot afternoon sun is usually deadly to hostas!
You will be very pleased with the lovely foliage and easy care of ‘August Moon’!
