Description / Hosta 'First Blush' Plantain Lily

Discover the allure of Hosta 'First Blush', an enchanting perennial that captivates with its unique red-leafed foliage and enduring beauty across three seasons.

Standing as a medium-sized herbaceous rhizomatous plant, 'First Blush' Hosta makes a bold statement in any garden landscape. Its broad, heart-shaped leaves emerge in spring, boasting a vibrant shade of green accentuated by delicate red margins and petioles that elegantly extend into the leaf blades. What truly sets this variety apart is the enchanting rosy blush that graces the foliage between the veins, creating a stunning visual display that lasts until the heat of late summer.

Adding to its charm are the funnel-shaped flowers that emerge in midsummer on long purplish-red scapes. These purple-pink blooms not only attract butterflies and hummingbirds, bringing life and movement to the garden but also serve as exquisite accents in floral arrangements, enhancing both indoor and outdoor spaces with their delicate beauty.

With its compact, symmetrical, mounding habit and rapid growth rate, Hosta 'First Blush' offers endless possibilities for garden design. Whether massed in beds and borders to create a captivating tapestry of color, showcased as a standalone specimen to command attention, or planted in containers and used as elegant edging, this versatile plant never fails to impress.

Resilient and adaptable, 'First Blush' Hosta thrives in dappled to full shade and prefers rich, moist, well-draining soil with an acidic to neutral pH. However, its exceptional adaptability allows it to flourish in a wide range of soil conditions, provided it is kept adequately hydrated.

Bred in Chapel Hill, NC, 'First Blush' Hosta stands as a testament to innovation and horticultural excellence. Elevate your garden with the unparalleled beauty of Hosta 'First Blush' and experience the joy of gardening with this remarkable perennial.

Shade garden stunners, hostas are low-maintenance perennials. Known for their variety of leaf colors and sizes, you can plant an entire shade garden using only hostas. Find tips for planting and maintenance in our Hosta Care Guide.
