(Mature Size: 20"T x 35"W)
Sport of H. 'Aphrodite' that differs by having even more flower petals than its parent.
Shiny green leaves look like plastic especially when the sun glistens on them.
Like other plantaginea hostas, 'Venus' will benefit from a bright warm area with good soil and constant moisture.
This hosta can grow slightly larger than our listed size but we have not seen one any bigger than listed size.
Northern growers will benefit from giving the clump, especially the first couple winters, a 2-3" layer of mulch to protect from late freezes.
Fragrant white flowers appear in late summer with an explosion of flower petals. The flowers have so many petals that most flowers can't open properly.
Why Should I Grow It? Shiny green foliage with great sun tolerance. The flowers!
