Hostas are one of the most versatile shade loving plants for the garden. Halcyon Hosta is smaller in size, but is one of the most recognizable varieties. The gorgeous silvery blue-green leaves open up flat and have a thick texture that makes them more resistant to slug and snail damage. Halcyon is a variety of Hosta tardiana used to breed other cultivars since the 1970’s. The blue color is always the telltale trait that Halcyon passes on. Halcyon received the distinguished Merit Award from the American Hosta Society in 1987.

The dense, medium sized perennial is best when used at the front of a garden bed or in a container alone or as part of a mixed, seasonal planting. No other shade loving plant is easier than Hosta. Once they have been planted in the right spot you can just sit back and enjoy the seasonal show.

Halcyon Hosta Care

Halcyon Hosta likes to have a moist, shady spot in the garden. If the only shade you have is dry, consider growing Hosta in a container. This could also be a great way to add a bit of height and variation in a woodland garden scheme. Hostas grow well in just about any soil texture and pH level. Mulching these herbaceous perennials in the winter will help add nutrients to the soil and improve the moisture retention over time. An organic compost or leaves is the perfect mulch.

Seasonal maintenance is fast and easy. The whole plant will die back to the ground in the winter. Leaving the leaves to protect the crown over the winter means that only a quick raking up of the dead foliage in the spring is needed as the new leaves emerge. Dividing Hostas every 3-4 years will keep it growing vigorously and sending up flower scapes at the end of the summer.

Halcyon Hosta Spacing

Halcyon Hosta is a smaller and slower growing variety. The height at maturity is 15-18 inches with a width of 20-24 inches. Halcyon will benefit from a spacing of 20 inches to allow for proper air circulation around the plants. A smaller sized Hosta works well as an edging for a border or in multiples in a container.

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.
