If you are wanting to brighten up a shaded corner, Shadowland® Echo the Sun Hosta might just be what you are looking for. Producing attractive bright yellow leaves with rippled edges, the foliage is bound to draw attention. Furthermore, in mid-summer, it develops stunning lavender blooms that are loved by hummingbirds. With a low and prostrate habit, Echo the Sun is ideal for a smaller space.
Hostas are native to Asia and this variety is suitable for growing in USDA zones 3 to 9. Being a low-maintenance perennial, this hosta is easy to care for as long as the slugs are kept at bay. With its clump-forming habit, Echo the Sun is perfect for growing in a container or planting out in groups to provide maximum impact. Try it in a shady bed or border to add instant brightness.
Shadowland® Echo the Sun Hosta Care
Like all hostas, Shadowland® Echo the Sun likes to be grown in partial to full shade. Preferring a fertile soil that is kept moist, it is best to avoid poor, dry soils or exposed areas. Watering is needed during dry spells and while getting the hosta established. Provide about 1 inch of water per week during the growing season. When it comes to feeding hostas, those grown in the ground tend only to need a yearly mulch of organic matter. However, when grown in containers, a balanced liquid feed can be beneficial during the growing season.
Once the flowers have faded, they can be removed to give a neater appearance. After the first winter frost, the foliage will die back and can be cut away. Even though cold hardy, container-grown plants can be moved under cover for some added winter protection.
Shadowland® Echo the Sun Hosta Spacing
Over time, the Shadowland® Echo the Sun Hosta can grow to an eventual 1-2 feet high and 3-4 feet wide. If planting this hosta in a grouping, a spacing of 3 to 4 feet between plants is advisable.
