Hosta 'Frances Williams'

Plantain lily

Hosta 'Frances Williams'
Hosta 'Frances Williams'

One of the most popular hosta cultivars available, Hosta 'Frances Williams' has large leathery dark green leaves with irregular yellow-green margins. In summer it produces tall spikes of grey-white flowers. An ideal plant for partial or even full shade, it prefers a moist, slightly acidic soil.

Hostas are prone to slug and snail damage, but the use of nematode treatments can help to reduce this.
