White Line Fever The Hosta Seducer, Hosta ‘Seducer’, is a very large sized hosta with broad dark green leaves. ‘Seducer’ has dark green leaves that are trimmed in slightly ruffled, yellow margins. There is a trace of a white line that develops between the two colors as the season progresses; summer heat is needed for the white line to develop. Late summer through fall, the clump is topped by near white flowers that rise on tall scapes. Because ‘Seducer’ has large leaves its coloration is very distinct. Hostas grow best in moist, well-drained, highly organic soils with a pH between 5.5 and 7.5. Sandy loam is better than clay because it provides more aeration for the roots. It is best to keep areas around hostas clear of excess leaf debris to reduce the presence of slugs and snails. Plant this low care plant in an area that receives the right amount of light. The leaves need some morning sun to bring out the best coloration. Too much sun will burn the leaves. ‘Seducer’ is most at home in shady, woodland settings and often works well as specimen or edging plant. ‘Seducer’ has an amazing assortment of colors in each leaf that intensifies in bright light; fairly sun tolerant but should be given dappled shade. * Large Dark Green Leaves with Yellow Ruffles* White Line Develops with Heat* White Flowers .
