This beauty will win your heart with its lovely foliage. It has striking, variegated leaves of green with white centers that will brighten your shade garden. The flower stalks, called ‘racems,’ hold bell-like, lavender-colored blossoms in midsummer. Hummingbirds are attracted to the flowers. A reliable and hardy plant, it is 14-inches high with 22-inch scapes.

This plant has a mounded growth habit. Introduced to the United States from Europe in the early 1800s, hostas are native to China, Japan, and Korea. You can utilize Christmas Candy in a variety of ways: use it as a filler in combination planters, grow it as a specimen or as the focal point of your shade border, or pair it with other white flowering plants to grow in a moonlight garden. Christmas Candy is the perfect companion for other shade perennials, such as astilbe, Dicentra (bleeding heart), ferns, Tiarella (foam flower), and Tradescantia (spiderwort).

Christmas Candy Hosta Care

Plant in rich, moist soil that is high in organic matter. This hosta, however, can survive in a wide range of soils. It requires an average amount of water – about 1 inch per week. If you plant your hosta in summer, it will need more water until the root system is developed. To conserve water, mulch with shredded bark, shredded leaves, or pine needles. You may add a balanced fertilizer in spring as the leaves emerge. Avoid an excessive amount of high nitrogen fertilizer. This plant thrives on part-shade to shade, but too dark a location will cause a slower growth rate.

Pruning is unnecessary except for damaged leaves and dead flowers. Some gardeners like to trim off hosta flowers before they mature so that they do not distract from the foliage. Christmas Candy’s bell-like, lavender blooms, however, are too pretty to remove. Before winter arrives, rake up and dispose of dead leaves to reduce chances of disease or insect pests.

Christmas Candy Hosta Spacing

Correct spacing of hostas is good horticultural practice. Using a coarse bark mulch and proper spacing between plants allows good circulation to create a dry, rough surface that slugs dislike. The right spacing for Christmas Candy is 24 inches between plant centers.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
