Hosta 'Devon Green' is a chance sport of Hosta 'Halcyon', one of the most popular hostas of all time. It forms a dense, medium-sized hummock of heart-shaped leaves. Each leaf is a warm, dark green with a highly glossy surface. This shows in perfect relief its distinctive and prominent veining – the real attraction of this cultivar. And the thickness of the leaves makes 'Devon Green' one of the best varieties for slug resistance. In high summer, lily-like flowers of pale lilac shades are held on tall spikes.

Hostas, or plantain lilies, are almost exclusively shade-lovers, and grown for their large, lustrous foliage. They can be used as ground cover in a border, or as underplantings for shrubs and trees. Or, if you have just a small courtyard, patio garden or balcony, they make handsome specimens to grace a patio pot.

One of the 'Devon' Series of hostas, Hosta 'Devon Green' has received an Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS).
