Generalities Hosta tardiana
The Hosta tardiana is medium in size and 1 m in height; in the spring, summer, autumn, winter it assumes a greenwhite 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. The Hosta tardiana is a perennial herb plant. Fertilization Hosta tardiana
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. Exposure Hosta tardianaPosizione mezza ombra
The the Hosta tardiana should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero. 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.These plants lose the aerial part during the coldest months of the year. As spring begins, stems and leaves quickly start to reproduce. Watering Hosta tardianaTenere Umido
During this period of the year the the Hosta tardiana 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 tardiana
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 tardiana
These plants need a scarcely drained soil, which can remain slightly damp.
