Hosta varietals for Lamium Goleobdolon

Posted by designerevan IL (My Page) on

I have much Lamium growing with a beautiful yellow flower and a varigated green leaf with silver. What hosta varietals would look best with this color leaf? I am interested in utilizing a blue leaf hosta, but I'd like to limit my testing to three or so plants, since I'll be ordering from a catalog. Would love some direction.

Any would be beautiful. I think all you will want to consider is the size when making your choices. Large leaf, small leaf, tall, short, texture, etc. I can't grow lamium here and miss it very much - a beautiful plant in and of itself.

I agree with lupineloon. Note the height and spread of your Lamium and choose your hosta considering your space and how you want the bed to look.

Here's a link to my personal favorite blue.
