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 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.
