Looking to add some unique texture to your landscape? Silly String Hosta (Hosta 'Silly String' PP32127) features wavy, lance-shaped leaves and purple flowers. During the midsummer, trumpet-like flowers form in clusters and are held up on stalks above the foliage. Silly String Hosta’s blue foliage and light purple flowers will add charm to any shade garden. Its mature size is 14 inches high and 2 feet wide. This hosta grows well in USDA hardiness zones 3 through 9. 

Silly String Hosta has a mounded growth habit and is ideal for shade gardens, borders, and edges. It also works nicely as a cover for your fading spring bulbs. For the ultimate landscape texture, try planting this hosta with companions like Brunnera and Heuchera. The blooms of the Silly String Hosta serve as a great nectar source for hummingbirds.

Silly String Hosta Care

Silly String Hosta requires medium water and low sunlight. Select a location with part to full shade (0 - 4 hours of sunlight daily). Morning sun is preferred to afternoon sun, which may scorch leaves. Acidic to neutral soil pH will provide the best growth results. Although Silly String Hosta tolerates many different soil types, it prefers well-draining, fertile, moist soils. Avoid planting in clay-based soils. Fertilize this hosta annually with a thin layer of high-quality compost.

In colder climates, Silly String Hosta should be heavily mulched to help protect its roots and retain soil moisture. Remember to pull back the mulch before new growth appears in the spring, which decreases the chance of slugs. Prune flower stalks as they fade.

Silly String Hosta Spacing

Silly String Hostas spread about 28 inches, so they’ll need to be spaced at least 28 inches apart for best growth results.

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.
