Hosta Sagae Description
Take note! Hosta Sagae will turn heads in the shade garden! One clump can grow up to 4" wide!
Huge, 12" frosty blue leaves are colorfully edged in a creamy gold, and impress you with upward facing, wavy leaves! Will tolerate more sun than other Hostas, but will lose some of its favorable blue coloring.
Slugs stay away from the thick foliage which stays neat and tidy looking from spring thru fall!
Sagae will grow up to 26" tall and 48" wide. Upward leaves welcome shorter shade groundcovers to be planted beneath, and viewed by all. Hostas are a workhouse in the garden are are stunning in a mixed perennial border or pair with Heucheras, colorful Hellebore, or Hydrangeas.

Hostas grow best in a rich, moisture retentive soil, but can tolerate a range of soil conditions. Plant in shade or part shade but protect from the harsh afternoon sun. Charming pale lavender flowers on 36 inch scapes in the summer. It is no wonder this delightful shade perennial has won numerous awards. Sagae begs for a large area (up to 48 inches wide) area in shade garden plans.

Ideas and How-to's
Recommended for You:
Soil: Evenly moist, organically rich, slightly acid, well-drained soils.
Light: Part shade to full shade -- Best in part shade (some morning sun or sun dappled conditions).
Water: Medium -- Established plants have some tolerance for dry shade (particularly plants with thick leaves), but soils should never be allowed to dry out. Water is best applied directly to the soil beneath the leaves.
Spacing: 0.75 to 1.00 feet
Fertilizing: Light application of time release fertilizer, or side-dress with compost and organic amendments when new growth appears in early spring.
Winterizing: Foliage should be cut back to the ground in the fall. Provide a winter mulch of evergreen boughs, 2" of leaves or salt marsh hay after the ground freezes to help prevent heaving, and protect the shallow crowns.
Maintenance & Pruning: GreaGardenPlants.com offers slug-proof varieties. However, there may be regions of the country where the environment is conducive to slugs. Slugs are the bane of Hostas; use slug bait, dishes of beer, and diatomaceous earth to discourage them. Groom plants by removing yellow or dead leaves and cut flower spikes back as they finish blooming in summer.
