Hosta Sagae, Hosta ‘Sagae’, displays frosty green leaves with creamy yellow margins that form very large impressive clumps. Hosta ‘Sagae’ is one of our favorites!
With very heavy, visual substance and good slug resistance, ‘Sagae’ provides pale, lavender flowers on 34″ tall scapes in mid-summer.
Previous winner of numerous awards including: Trophy Award, Benedict Award, and American Hosta Growers Society Hosta of the Year.
‘Sagae’ is considered to be the most dramatic variegated Hosta ever introduced. Plants mature into breath-taking specimens reaching grand widths!
Hostas grow best in moist, well-drained, highly organic soils with a pH between 5.5 and 7.5. Sandy loam is better than clay because it provides more aeration for the roots. It is best to keep areas around Hostas clear of excess leaf debris to reduce the presence of slugs and snails.
Plant this low care plant in an area that receives the right amount of light. The leaves need some morning sun to bring out the best coloration. Too much sun will burn the leaves. ‘Sagae’ is most at home in shady, woodland settings and often works well as specimen or edging plant.
