The Hosta of the Year for 2020 is Dancing Queen. The golden lime colored swirl of foliage looks amazing when planted with dark burgundy or purple leaved perennials such as Heuchera. Late in the summer, lavender flower scapes pop up to attract hummingbirds. Dancing Queen Hosta is the perfect size for the front of a shady garden bed or container growing.

All hostas are easy to grow, with low maintenance requirements. They are at home in the shaded woodland garden. With extra irrigation, hostas can be grown in partly sunny spots. Hostas with lighter foliage, such as Dancing Queen, are the best candidates for a sunnier lifestyle.

Dancing Queen Hosta Care

Hostas like a consistently moist soil that has good drainage. Mulching the crowns in the late fall with organic compost or leaves helps it to overwinter successfully. A slightly acidic to slightly alkaline soil pH is fine. Fertilizing with a slow release, well balanced feed early in the spring as new shoots emerge will keep the plant vigorous and the color bright. 

Dividing of Hostas should be done every 3-4 years. The lower hardiness zones should do the dividing and replanting early when the new growth starts. Hardiness zones with higher numbers will be more successful dividing and replanting in the fall. Old growth at the end of the fall should be removed to protect the crown from possibly rotting.  Fresh mulch for the winter is a better insulator.

Dancing Queen Hosta Spacing

Dancing Queen is a smaller Hosta that needs much less space than the bigger leaf varieties. Height of 15- 18 inches and a width of 18 -24 inches. Spacing these plants at 18 inches on center will ensure proper air circulation.

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.

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).

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.
