Satisfaction Hosta (Hosta ‘Satisfaction’)

Satisfaction Hosta

The Satisfaction Hosta (Hosta ‘Satisfaction’) is an incredibly spectacular and dramatic gold-edged sport of Piedmont Gold Hosta. Satisfaction is bordered by wide leaf margins that are light green at first, and then turn bright gold in early summer.

The gold margins get to be about 2 inches wide at maturity for a gilded flash of color in the shade garden! It will have an impact on any area of your shade garden, and the margins turn cream if placed in a sunny location! Summer brings trumpet-shaped blossoms to attract a following of Hummingbirds and pollinators as they stop by to visit the nectar-rich near-white flowers atop the clump in midsummer on tall slender stems called scapes. Satisfaction is a low-mounded and stunning Hosta.

So delightfully easy to grow, Satisfaction is perfect for even the most novice gardeners! Cold-hardy, plus heat and humidity resistant, Hostas thrive in a broad range of growing zones throughout USDA 3 to 9. Growing just over two feet tall and a bit over 3 feet wide, these fountain-like clumps of cascading foliage all growing season!

Planting and Application:

Satisfaction is most at home in shady, woodland settings and often works well as a specimen or colorful shade garden accent! Hosta edging and facer plants look great along garden bed and border boundaries or along shaded paths and driveways. Plant Hosta along the fronts of hedges and beneath larger shrubs and trees where they can bask in the larger plants’ shade.

Great for landscapes big and small, and even those without a yard at all! Satisfaction is ideal in shade or woodland gardens of all sizes! But these wonderful foliage ornamentals also look fantastic in oversized containers and large planters on shaded porches and covered patio seating. However, these low-maintenance perennials are excellent used in mass as a lovely bi-color groundcover!

Tips for Care:

Plant this low-care Perennial 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. 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. Top-dress with a 3 – 4 inch thick layer of arborist mulch over the soil surface, especially in dry shade conditions. Deadhead Hostas as soon as the flowers fade for a tidy look, and in fall when these herbaceous Perennials die back from the cold, it’s time to prune the mound clean and remove the dead foliage. Divide your Hosta clumps every 3-5 years to maintain vigor. It is best to keep areas around Hostas clear of excess leaf debris to reduce the presence of slugs and snails.

  • Full Shade Perennial Also Tolerates Partial Shade
