Hosta 'Dancing Queen' Description

Striking garden staple with durable pie crust edges on radiant lemon yellow foliage

Dancing Queen hosta is a twinkling star of the shade garden with their bright yellow leaves, ruffled edges &  mounded habit.  Unlike other yellow hostas that emerge yellow and turn green by summer, Dancing Queen is an exceptional large leaf hosta that emerges yellow and stays yellow all season long. 

You can grow Dancing Queen in both sun and shade where it will ultimately grow 24" high by a whopping 40" wide.

A premium hosta with good thick leaf texture and high degree of slug resistance. Dancing Queen has impressed many hosta collectors and growers!

Once planted, hostas can be left alone to increase slowly every year in size and provide months of color.  In garden design, this beauty will brighten up dull areas of a shde gardens. Plant with ferns, heucheras, use as a replacement for a shrub.  There is nothing more beautiful than pairing with a red Japanese maple

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: GreatGardenPlants.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.
