The beloved Hosta 'Frances Williams'This beloved Hosta reigned as number one on the American Hosta Growers Society popularity poll form many many years. Frances Williams is probably the most beloved Hosta of all times and with very good reason. The giant blue-green leaves almost look quilted they are so heavily corrugated. Margins are very wide and consist of a heavenly combination of chartreuse and shades of yellow.  The foliage of Frances Williams is very tough, sometimes described as leathery, which makes it very slug resistant.  Many gardening resources list Frances Williams as being sun tolerant - while this is true with adequate water we do not recommend it for full sun.  The water requirements for a Hosta of this size will keep you constantly dragging out the water hose.  For beautiful Frances Williams Hostas locate the plants out of direct evening sun.

Hostas prefer partial to full shade and a good rich garden soil that is moist but well drained. Moisture plays a crucial role in growing beautiful Hosta plants - you will need to water plants during prolonged dry spells. Feed in very early spring with a top dressing of composted manure and bone meal.  Liquid feed at least twice during the growing season with seaweed extract or fish emulsion.  For more growing instructions see our Hosta care guide.
