Sagae Hosta was named for the northern Honshu Japanese town that it was discovered in.  It’s large heart-shaped leaves are wavy on the edges and frosty-blue with creamy margins.  While the foliage emerges early in the spring, the white flowers do not make an appearance until mid to late summer.  Hostas are extremely popular, hardy herbaceous perennials grown primarily for their beautiful foliage. They are easy to grow, shade-tolerant plants. Leaves come in a wide range of shapes, colors, sizes, and textures and may be solid in color or variegated in different combinations of blue, green, white, and gold. The plants are low maintenance. Hostas originally came from Japan, China, and Korea. They were first introduced to Europe in the late 1700s and then came to the United States in the middle 1800s.
