Exposure Hosta albomarginataPosizione mezza ombra
The the Hosta albomarginata should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero. These plants lose the aerial part during the coldest months of the year. As spring begins, stems and leaves quickly start to reproduce.It is advisable to position this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day.

Generalities Hosta albomarginata
The Hosta albomarginata is a perennial herb plant. The Hosta albomarginata is medium in size and 1 m in height; in the spring, summer, autumn, winter it assumes a yellowgreen colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form.

Fertilization Hosta albomarginata
We suggest adding to the irrigation water, in the spring, every 20-25 days, a specific fertilizer for flowering plants. We can also mix to the soil near the plants a granular slow release fertilizer, which has a 3-4 month action.

Watering Hosta albomarginataTenere Umido
During this period of the year the the Hosta albomarginata needs regular watering, which should be done letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; let’s irrigate every 1-2 weeks with about 2-3 glasses of water . Perennial plants are subject to some months of vegetational rest. During these months it isn't necessary to water them.

Treatments Hosta albomarginata
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Soil Hosta albomarginata
These plants need a scarcely drained soil, which can remain slightly damp.
