Hosta “First Frost”
Hosta “First Frost”
|"First Frost" Hosta is a fantastic hosta, that holds its leaves all the way until the first frost, at least! These are hardy perennials in zone 3-9 and this Hosta starts pushing up green leaves early to mid-spring. In late spring it will grow flowers that rise up to 2' feet tall, which are a pale lavender color. Emerges with a gold edge in the spring, then that color turns white later in the season. Looks great anywhere in a shade garden and looks excellent when paired with other hostas, especially solid-color hostas. This is a great hosta that is super cold and hardy, that will love to live in a shaded to a mostly shaded area at your home! Hostas like this one, are very easy to grow, even for a beginner!|

Sizing can vary, and the average height of the plant will vary. Plants (perennials) such as this one grow all new foliage every year so these are not judged on how tall they are when shipped, instead, they are judged solely on how big the roots are based upon the size of the pot they are growing in. The larger the root ball, The bigger the pot means, the larger the plant will be right from the start.
There will not be any flowers growing when you receive your plant, if the plant is flowering during the time of your order, the flowers will be removed so the plant can have the energy to make it through the mail and stay healthy. Some/All Leaves may also be removed for shipping purposes. But no worries, plants like this will grow new leaves as soon as the plant is ready, just take care of it like normal.
All of our trees ship Bareroot which means they will ship with no soil and no pot. This allows the plants to have a safer trip through the mail as well as to cut down on shipping costs majorly. The roots will be carefully removed from the pot they are growing in, and then wrapped in moist material with the roots sealed up to keep them moist during transit.
To follow your state regulations, we can not ship this plant to California, AZ, AK, HI
Deliveries to WA, UT, ID, NV, MT, ND, and SD MUST be shipped Bareroot.
