Niagara Falls has enormous 16 inch long leaves with a waxy sheen and pie crusted edges. Deeply impressed veins give the plants as corrugated look which provide a great textural element to the hosta garden. Niagara Falls goes well with gold colored hostas. Light purple bell-shaped flowers emerge on 48" scapes in mid-July.
Phlox stolonifera with Bloodroot, Vinca, Columbine and Hosta. I’ve found that this is a shallow rooted plant. Keeping it out of the hot afternoon sun keeps the soil from getting too dry. While it has tolerated some dryness I haven’t taken a chance to see just how dry it can get. During the summer I water the area a little if we haven’t had rain.
