Undulata Mediovariegata Hosta Bareroot Plant


Undulata Mediovariegata Hosta, commonly known as Variegated Plantain Lily, is a striking perennial plant prized for its lush foliage and low maintenance requirements. This hosta variety features large, heart-shaped leaves with distinctive creamy-white centers and dark green margins, creating a beautiful contrast in any garden setting.

In summer, it produces tall spikes of lavender or white flowers that rise above the foliage, adding an elegant touch to its already picturesque appearance. Its dense clumping habit makes it an excellent choice for borders, woodland gardens, or as a groundcover.

Key Features:

  • Color: Dark green leaves with creamy-white centers.
  • Fragrance: Hostas are not typically grown for their fragrance.
  • Wildlife Attraction: Hostas may attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies, but are generally resistant to browsing by deer and rabbits.
  • Pest Resistance: Hostas are generally resistant to most pests, but can be susceptible to slugs and snails.
  • Planting Zone: USDA Hardiness Zones 3-9.
  • Sun Preferences: Partial to full shade, though they can tolerate some morning sun.
  • Drought Tolerance: Hostas prefer moist, well-drained soil and are not particularly drought-tolerant. Regular watering is recommended, especially during dry spells.
  • Planting Instructions from Bare Root:
    • Choose a planting location with partial to full shade and well-drained soil.
    • Dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball.
    • Place the hosta in the hole, ensuring the crown (where the roots meet the stems) is level with the soil surface.
    • Backfill the hole with soil and tamp it down gently to remove air pockets.
    • Water thoroughly after planting and keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged, during the growing season.

Undulata Mediovariegata Hosta is a versatile and resilient plant that adds texture and interest to any garden, making it a popular choice among gardeners seeking low-maintenance yet beautiful foliage.

Proud Products Guarantee!!

Plants from Daylily Nursery are guaranteed to arrive healthy and green. If you have any concerns or are dissatisfied within the first five days of receiving your plants, please email or call our office. If your plants have received less-than-ideal care or were purchased for planting outside of your recommended growing zone, your purchase isn’t covered by our guarantee. Zone recommendations are provided in our listings.
Use your best judgment before ordering during unusually hot or cold weather (below 32 degrees F, or in excess of 95F for shipping purposes), as these extremes may leave your plant vulnerable to damage. The optimal time for planting for most of our material is in mid to late spring, past the danger of hard frost. This allows your plants the longest possible growing season. Summer and very early fall are also suitable, as long as your plant is placed in optimal conditions and receives adequate water. Late fall and winter are very risky in most areas. When in doubt about suitable planting times or zone compatible plants for your area, reach out to your local Agricultural Extension Office.
If issues with your plants arise within the first 30 days of receipt, please email or call our office. Our knowledgeable staff will review your concerns and provide guidance and troubleshooting, or a one-time replacement if necessary.
