A lovely hosta, ‘Dinner Jacket’, has lance shaped leaves yellow green in the middle with blue green margins. The trumpet shaped, lilac flowers appear in summer. Hostas are prized for their lush attractive foliage; strong waxy leaves provide great ground cover and contrast well with other plants. An ideal plant to grow in drifts along a shaded border. Hostas make excellent subjects for container growing, forming striking clumps. They prefer shade and rich, moist but well drained soil. Propagate by division in early spring. Surround plants with a good layer of coarse grit each spring to protect them from slugs. Height to 45 cm.
