About Orange Marmalade - Hosta Roots


Seed Type Root
Also known as Plantain Lily

Add some bold color to your shady spots! Orange Marmalade hostas are real head-turners. Plant them in the fall, and in the spring you'll start to see their leaves form, in a beautiful blue-green color. Come summer, the real show begins as the leaf centers turn an intense golden orange. Over time, the color fades to a beautiful creamy white. In July, you'll get another treat as the bell-shaped lavender blooms appear, growing up to 24 inches high! Hostas are so versatile and easy to grow; they are great in containers and as groundcover and edging. Just make sure you keep an eye out for snails and slugs. Good news: their blooms are pollinators, so be on the lookout for happy bees!
